If English is not your first language, you may need to improve your skills on a pre-sessional language course before starting your degree at Sussex. Pre-sessional courses are specialist courses to prepare international and overseas students for study in UK Higher Education.
There are several different lengths of pre-sessional course and which course is the right one for you will depend on your incoming language level, and the level you need to achieve for your chosen degree.
