A Pre-Masters is for international students who need to improve their English or develop research, academic writing and seminar skills ahead of a taught master's degree. Pre-Masters programmes in the UK are designed to prepare students fully for studying at postgraduate level.
Courses range from ten weeks to twelve months and provide an essential grounding for successful postgraduate study. A Pre-Masters will greatly increase the English language and study skills required for successful postgraduate study, as well as familiarising international students with UK teaching methods.
You will need to take a Pre-Masters if:
You must have finished an undergraduate degree at a recognised institution with at least a pass. For a typical two-semester Pre-Masters, a minimum IELTS score of 5.5 is generally required.
UK universities welcome postgraduate students from all over the world, and you should not be discouraged if your academic and English language skills fall short of what is required. Learn more about some of the best Pre-Masters providers in the UK:

My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
