On-campus Pre-sessional English


Learn more about entry requirements for the On Campus courses

There are several different lengths of Pre-sessional courses. Choosing the right one for you will depend on your incoming language level and the level you need to achieve for your chosen degree.

You can apply for an integrated CAS for the 5- and 10-week Pre-sessional courses only, if your offer is conditional on IELTS. If you have an academic condition, you cannot apply for an integrated CAS. You cannot have an integrated CAS if you have a conditional offer of IELTS 7.0.

Please note SCLS accepts all SELTs (Secure English Language Tests) recognised by UKVI for Student Route visas. We also accept a wider range of English tests for short-term study visas or students who do not require a visa. Please contact us for more details.
