If you do not meet the English language requirements to study the International Foundation Year, you can improve your level of English with the English Language Preparation programme. This is a great option for students who wish to improve their English skills before focussing on their chosen subject.
Taught at the International Study Centre, the English Language Preparation programme is a one-term course that you study before the International Foundation Year course. The English Language Preparation programme will boost your skills and get you on track for further study.
Once you successfully complete the programme, and achieve the required grades, you will go on to study your chosen International Foundation Year subject route at the International Study Centre, before progressing on to your undergraduate degree at Leeds Beckett University.
To study the English Language Preparation programme you need to have IELTS 4.0 (with minimum 4.0 in writing), or equivalent. You can check the entry requirements for our other courses at the International Study Centre to see what language level you will need to achieve.
Learn English language, academic and study skills, grow in confidence and prepare for the first year of a degree at Leeds Beckett University through a pathway of your choice.
