for our Summer 2020 online 6-week and 3-week courses are now open. Please see the section on 'How to apply'. 

Our pre-sessional programme prepares international students joining Imperial College London to study STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine) degrees.

Latest COVID-19 update: 6 April 2020

To ensure the health of its students and staff, the College is operating remotely at least until the end of the summer term (26 June 2020).  As there is no confirmed date for when College will re-open, we have transformed our 6-week and 3-week face-to-face pre-sessional courses into courses that will be delivered and assessed remotely for summer 2020. Please note that the course dates have been brought forward to allow time for successful students to obtain a visa for entry to their main programme and/or to travel to the UK. 

Our online Pre-sessional English courses can help you learn the real academic language and skills that you need for successful study at Imperial. Our 6-week and 3-week pre-sessional courses are now available online for distance learning. Our online courses are specifically designed for students studying science, technology, engineering, maths or medicine (STEMM) at Imperial. They deliver the same academic content as our face-to-face courses and are full-time and intensive.


Unfortunately, the changes in timing necessitated by moving online mean that it is not possible to offer a 12-week pre-sessional course for summer 2020. 

If you had already applied for the face-to-face 12-week course, the Admissions team should already have contacted you. If this is not the case, please contact your Admissions team to discuss your situation.
