English language support

Overview

We have English language courses and support if English is not your first language.

Pre-sessional English courses can help you meet the English language requirements of your offer to study with us.

There is also In-sessional English language support throughout your time studying with us.

Pre-sessional English

Pre-sessional English Language Support courses are designed to help improve your English before you start your degree.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering 8 and 12-week Pre-sessional courses online only from June to September 2020.

You can study either the 8-week course or the 12-week course, depending on your IELTS scores.

Your offer letter tells you which English Language Band you need to meet. This will be one of 10 English Language Bands which are listed below:

In-sessional English

Our free In-sessional English language lessons and support are designed to help you throughout your time studying with us.

If you haven't studied with INTO Newcastle, you will take a short English Language test when you arrive. This is to identify if you need any extra study support.

We have free English lessons throughout the year, including classes in:

  • academic writing
  • listening and speaking
  • presentation skills
  • pronunciation and grammar
