About these courses

Entering a new environment can be challenging especially if English is not your first language. Our Pre-sessional English courses are aimed at international students, and are designed to help you improve your English language skills so that you can fully participate in your study programme.
Whatever your current level of English we have a Pre-sessional course for you. Our focus on quality, combined with a participative learning approach and small class sizes, allows us to deliver a course that is right for you.

Course delivery

During this course you will focus on developing your English language skills so you meet the minimum language requirements (IELTS 6.5) for your programme, and become more confident when using English.  The course will also introduce you to the University of Gibraltar as well as provide the opportunity to settle into your new environment and meet other students.
