Prepare for your postgraduate degree

The Pre-Master’s is a two-term programme that will help you gain the specialist academic English language skills needed to succeed in a range of Master’s degrees at the University of Huddersfield. You can choose from two routes, depending on the postgraduate degree you want to study: Art and Design or Business.

Why study the Pre-Master's?

The Pre-Master's programme is specially designed to prepare ambitious international students with the skills and understanding needed to succeed in a postgraduate degree at Huddersfield. With a postgraduate degree, you can improve your career opportunity and salary potential, and even change career direction after completing your undergraduate degree.

What will I study?

Classes for the Pre-Master's are modular in structure, meaning you will study a combination of core modules common to each route, and route-specific modules designed to focus on the subject area most relevant to your future degree. We will support you to gain:

  • A range of academic and learning skills
  • The right academic qualifications and subject understanding
  • The ability to use the English language in an academic environment to a high standard.

If you need additional English language support before beginning your program, you can start with English for Pre-Master's.
