There has been a rush for university places this year after A Level results were announced. With competition now so fierce for places at UK universities, many will not gain the places they are looking for.
This problem increases if English is not your first language. There are many potential students out there who are very good at their chosen subject, but would need to improve their English skills in order to gain a place at a UK university.
This is where a pre-university course at Concorde International can help. We offer a range of quality courses to suit those looking to study higher education in the UK. There are even some scholarships available.
We can offer several pathways to university. There are general English courses or more specific courses aimed at students studying business related subjects.
Our University Access and Pre-Masters courses offer a general preparation for entry into UK universities at Undergraduate and Postgraduate level.
These two courses prepare students both linguistically and psychological for study by improving language skills, plus teaching academic and research skills.
The University Foundation Courses in Business Management ensure that students are prepared for business type courses. Throughout the certificate in business management the students are supported and helped towards choosing and applying for a university course.
They are also taught a variety of language that would be useful in the business English environment. Students who have taken this course go on to study degrees in subjects like business, finance, marketing and management.
The IELTS (International English Language Testing System) exam is also taken during these courses. Students are required to reach a certain level in this exam in order to get into a UK university.
So if you want to study at a British university but feel your language skills may be holding you back, then apply for one of our pre-university courses to increase your chances of gaining a university place.
