What to Expect

This programme is tailored to help you develop the skills required at Master’s level and bridge the gap between your ability and experience and the ambition to study at Postgraduate level. An emphasis is placed on encouraging students to become independent learners.

Our Pre-Master’s course will also help you to develop your spoken English, presenting skills, portfolio and your understanding of specialist terminology required for entry onto a Master’s. It will also give you the experience of working at postgraduate level and help you build on existing skills and develop potential lines of research.
