Meet our previous students

Our Pre-sessional students come from a diverse range of background and go on to study a variety of different graduate and undergraduate degrees at UCL.

We thought you’d like to hear about our courses from the people who know them best: our students.

In our most recent end of course questionnaire from 2023:

  • 99% were satisfied with course quality
  • 97% enjoyed studying our courses
  • 95% felt prepared to study for their UCL degree

In 2023, 97% of our Pre-sessional English students progressed to a UCL degree after successfully passing the course.
