International Academic & Language Support
If English is not your first language, we offer language support to help you with your spoken and written English. This free support package is called International Academic Language Support (IALS).
IALS can run alongside any degree and postgraduate programme and is open to all international students for whom English is not a ﬁrst language and/or those who have not previously been educated in the UK. The support runs alongside your regular programme, at undergraduate or postgraduate level, and across all subjects.
IALS is in addition to our Pre-sessional programme which can help you to improve academic and language skills by the equivalent of 1.0 of an IELTS grade which can be taken in July and August before beginning your degree studies.
