A range of Academic English courses for students who wish to improve their English prior to starting a programme at the University of Edinburgh.
We offer two summer EGAP courses to help students develop the required English language skills. Students are grouped by language level.
From mid-August, after the second EGAP course, students move to one of our 4-week ESAP 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.
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.
