Pre-Masters Courses in the UK

What is a Pre-Masters?

A Pre-Masters course is for international students who need to improve their English and develop research, academic writing and seminar skills ahead of a taught masters degree. Pre-Masters programmes in the UK are designed to prepare international students fully for studying at postgraduate level and deliver high quality students.

Courses range in length from ten weeks to twelve months and provide an essential grounding for successful postgraduate study. A Pre-Masters will greatly increase the English language and study skills required for successful postgraduate study, as well as familiarising international students with UK teaching methods.

Do I need to study a Pre-Masters?

You will need to take a Pre-Masters if:

  • Your undergraduate degree does not meet the academic requirements of your masters
  • You need to improve your use of academic or general English
  • You need to improve your study, research and presentation skills

Pre-Masters entry requirements

You must have finished an undergraduate degree at a recognised institution with at least a pass. For a typical two-semester Pre-Masters, a minimum IELTS score of 5.5 is required.

If you have not yet reached the required score for your desired programme, you can take extra IELTS preparation lessons in London, Manchester or online with our experienced teachers. Sign up for an IELTS practice test and improve your reading, writing, speaking and listening.
