English Language Preparation Course
If your English language does not meet the required entry requirements for your course you may still be offered a place on the condition you successfully complete a pre-sessional English course.
LJMU offers pre-sessional English language courses to undergraduate and postgraduate students to help develop your English language ability ahead of starting your course. Courses are delivered over four, eight, or 12 weeks, with each block of four weeks aiming to increase an IELTS score by 0.5. For example, a 12 week course of study will lift an IELTS score by 1.5 IELTS.
LJMU English Language entry criteria will range from IELTS 6.00 to 7.00 depending on the requirements of your chosen course. You must achieve an IELTS score that is within 1.5 of the course requirements in order to be offered entry onto the pre-sessional course.
