Undergraduate Admissions

What are presessional English courses?

Presessional English courses are designed for students who wish to improve their knowledge of spoken and written English in preparation for academic study at the University of Birmingham.

Students with conditional offers have the option of attending one of these courses instead of retaking IELTS.

The courses are managed and delivered by our Birmingham International Academy.

Due to the current global COVID-19 situation, the majority of our presessional programmes will run online in 2020.
