Pre-Masters Programme In UK


Pre-sessional for Postgraduate Studies

This short three-month Pre-Masters programme is designed for students who have completed their first degrees but who want to prepare for study at masters level by improving their Academic English and Study Skills. The course helps students to develop their language skills and achieve the standard required to meet university language entry requirements.

Our Pre-Masters also helps students to prepare for the style of teaching and learning required at postgraduate level, developing research skills, understanding how to avoid plagiarism, and how to make effective academic presentations.

Students are taught in small classes allowing our tutors to give each student individual support and attention.

A key part of the course is the one-to-one advice given to students in choosing the right university and in all parts of the university application process.

The course is delivered over three months in IFG centres or can be studied online in our virtual classroom.
