De Broc Launches Pre-Sessional English Programme to Help International Students Succeed at University

 

De Broc School of Business is launching a pre-sessional English programme, designed to help international students who have been offered a place at the university achieve the required IELTS score they need for their degree.

The programme is available to students who hold an offer on either the three-year or four-year undergraduate business degrees.

Students will be in class for 25 hours a week for seven weeks to develop their English language skills. During the first weeks of the programme students will prepare for the IELTS test and begin developing the communication skills (including grammar and vocabulary) they need for undergraduate study.

In the final weeks the programme will cover all the essentials students will need, from communication skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing), to academic skills (essays, reports, summaries, seminar skills, note-taking and presentations).

Students who pass the test will receive an unconditional offer for their degree course.

To ensure students have the best possible experience both inside and outside of the classroom, students will be taken on two field trips to help them get to know London, the home of De Broc. The course also provides an opportunity to meet other students before term starts.

Rona O’Brien, De Broc’s National Director of Business Programmes, said: “Our students need to be proficient in English in order to succeed in their degree. This programme will prepare students for their studies at De Broc, as well as helping them to settle into student life in London.”

The cost of the course is £1,400, which includes the examination fee and learning materials. It is separate to the cost of the degree which will be paid in instalments.

Students who are interested in the course and would like to find out more, or who have any questions, should contact Admissions or call 0800 107 6766.
