A range of Academic English courses for students who wish to improve their English prior to starting a programme at the University of Edinburgh.
ELTC Summer Pre-sessional courses are accredited by The British Association of Lecturers in English for Academic Purposes (BALEAP) which inspects and accredits Academic English courses.
We offer two summer General English for Academic Purposes courses to help students develop the required English language skills. Students are grouped by language level.
From mid-August, after the second General EAP course, students move to one of our 4-week Specialist EAP courses. Each of these can also be taken as a stand-alone course.
If you have an unconditional place on one of the University's Distant Learning Masters programmes, you may be eligible for a new Online Pre-Sessional Academic Language course (OPAL).
Students are assessed at the end of their pre-sessional courses.
There is a recommended minimum English language study period when preparing for university entry.
