Coronavirus (COVID-19) - changes to 2021 English course provision

In response to the global coronavirus outbreak, we are looking carefully at all plans for the Pre-sessional course in 2021. The Autumn and Spring terms of Intensive English along with the first and second terms of the Extended Pre-sessional 40 and 28-week course will not be running this academic year (2020-21).

SCLS is currently looking carefully at all plans for Intensive English and Pre-sessional courses. We hope to be able to provide all our international partners and agents with details of the process very soon, but at present we are still assessing the options.

If you are interested in Pre-sessional courses from April 2021 onwards, please see the relevant pages.
