Before applying, please seek our advice about family, study, work or travel commitments that may affect you during your time on the Pre-sessional English course.
You should apply for your pre-sessional English course at least eight weeks before the start date – particularly if you require a visa to study in the UK. However, please apply as early as possible and check average visa processing times in your country. We reserve the right not to process late applications if you are unlikely to be able to start the course on day one.
Please advise us on the application form if you wish to book accommodation.
The simplest way to pay is via online payments, though bank drafts/transfers are also acceptable:
You must pay the balance of course and accommodation fees directly to Kingston University on or before the first day of the course.
You will be withdrawn from the Pre-sessional English course in cases where:
Please note: Students with a Tier 4 Student Visa sponsored by Kingston University may also be reported to UK Visas and Immigration.
If you wish to cancel your place on a Pre-sessional English course, you must send an email detailing your reasons for withdrawing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Refunds will only be made after the end of the pre-sessional English course.

Our pre-sessional English course is accredited by the British Association of Lecturers in English for Academic Purposes (BALEAP). This organisation sets rigorous criteria to ensure that courses in English language and study skills for speakers of other languages are of a high standard and provide an excellent quality of service.
