Pre-Master’s Programme

Studying for a Master’s in the UK can be daunting. In only one year of study, you need to be able to confidently construct impactful academic arguments and ensuring your academic research and writing skills are strong. For many students they need extra support before beginning their studies at postgraduate level. UEL’s Pre-Master’s Programme is designed to familiarise yourself with the skills and expectations of studying at postgraduate level at the university.

Knowing what to expect when you begin your postgraduate study at UEL is the first step to success. Our Pre-Master’s Programme is designed to prepare you for your studies by allowing you to practice your academic skills in a supportive environment.

Though you have experience of studying at Undergraduate Level in another country, the expectations of Postgraduate Study can be very different in the UK from anything you have come across before. Through interactive classes and university-style research sessions, by the time you finish the programme, you will have the fundamental skills you need to attain your best postgraduate taught Master’s grade.
