Our Pre-sessional courses at King's are a great alternative to IELTS tests because they teach you both academic and language skills you'll need during your degree. Our Pre-sessional courses are designed to not only help you meet the English language requirements of your degree offer but also to familiarise you with the challenges and expectations of UK higher education.

To be eligible for the Pre-sessional courses, applicants must have received an offer to study an academic programme at King’s. If you have not submitted an application to study either an undergraduate or postgraduate award programme at King’s you will not be eligible for these courses.


What English tests are accepted? 
We can accept the same standardised tests as we do for our degree programmes. These are IELTS (UKVI or Academic), Pearson Test of English (UKVI or Academic), TOEFL iBT (including TOEFL home, where it is being offered), Cambridge and Trinity exams.
