Short English courses

We provide English courses for international students who are coming to the UK to study to help you prepare.


Our Intensive IELTS Preparation Programme will help you prepare for taking an IELTS exam. This course is open to everyone - not just students of Middlesex University.

This course will open again in summer 2019.

Pre-sessional English courses

These courses can help you improve your English before you begin studying at Middlesex in the UK. Courses take place over the summer before term starts and the length of your course will depend on your level of English.
