The UCL Language Centre offers full and part-time English for Academic Purposes and undergraduate foundation courses for international students.
Preparation for university at university.
All UCL Language Centre preparatory course lectures, seminars, tutorials (and practical laboratory sessions) are delivered within the university. Students are registered as UCL students and have access to all UCL, University of London and Language Centre academic, welfare, and social and cultural resources.
Preparation for Graduates
Pre-sessional English Courses begin in April*, June, July and August and provide an intensive preparation for students holding a conditional offer of a place at UCL.
* The Extended Course beginning in April 2012 does not require students to already hold an offer of a place.
Our year-long Diploma in English for Academic Purposes begins in September and January each year and gives Masters students an opportunity to prepare their academic skills and make graduate applications over a longer period of time. This course is very popular and has a strong record of helping students progress to Masters programmes throughout the UCL.
Preparation for Undergraduates
The University Preparatory Certificate for Science and Engineering (UPCSE) is a full-time foundation course in science and engineering for international students who are aiming to gain access to undergraduate degree programmes at UCL and other top UK universities. This course has an excellent record of progression to UCL degree programmes.
Undergraduate or Graduate student at UCL can improve their academic reading, writing, listening and speaking by taking one of our Part-Time English Courses for 2 hours each week.
