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 programme, you can start with the Pre-Sessional English Programme for Pre-Master’s.
