English for University Study

Four students at computers

The English for University Study Programme (formerly known as the "Bridge programme") is a full-time English language and study skills course for international students.

It is specifically designed for students who:

  • want to improve their English language skills to the level needed for English-medium university education in the UK
  • want to learn the academic study skills they need to study effectively in the UK
    • The programme provides each student with the skills and language needed for a smooth transition into academic study. We aim to develop confident and successful students who are equipped for university study in the UK.
