Pre-sessional English course start dates

Pre-sessional English (PSE) Language courses are delivered in partnership with INTO University of Stirling. Students who need to improve their English language in order to meet the conditions of their offer can take our PSE course online before travelling to join us on campus.

Course dates for students starting a postgraduate course in October 2020

The start date for your Pre-sessional English Language course depends on whether you are taking the 8-week or 12-week course.
