Triangle

Our Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes courses are offered for study on campus here in Nottingham or as online courses.

Both on campus and online courses are comparable in terms of teaching, learning and student engagement. If you are able to, we would recommend you study your pre-sessional course on campus, so you can acclimatise to being in the UK and receive the benefits of campus life before progressing to your degree course.

Please choose the correct mode of delivery when applying, as once you start a course, you cannot change (unless there are extenuating circumstances).

 

On campus courses

Students taking a course on campus will need to travel to the UK and be based in Nottingham.

The courses will include a mix of:

  • face-to-face teaching
  • some online delivery, where you will work in small groups with your tutor and fellow students on MS Teams
  • monitored independent study   
  • one-to-one and group tutorials

In the event that the number recruited to an 'on campus' course is low, we may not be able to run it. If this is the case, we will inform you and provide more information at the earliest opportunity.

Online courses

Students taking an online course will not need to travel to the UK. 

The courses will include a mix of:

  • online delivery, where you will be taught in live classes via MS Teams
  • monitored independent study  
  • one-to-one and group tutorials

In the event that the number recruited to an 'online' course is low, we may not be able to run it, or we may run the course in a hybrid format, where you will join the in-person classes remotely and in real time. If this is the case, we will inform you and provide more information at the earliest opportunity.
