Prepare for your studies with our English language courses

Some universities and colleges require you to have achieved a certain level of English (as a language) before starting your studies. We offer pre-sessional English courses for students applying to Sussex, and Intensive English courses for students who wish to study in the UK more generally.

Summer courses

You can study at Sussex over the summer if you want to improve your English language skills and learn more about British culture. 

Improving your English language skills while you study

As part of your Sussex degree, we offer undergraduate modules in English in Academic Contexts. This is so you can become familiar with the conventions of academic English needed for tertiary study in the UK, and develop the language and skills required for effective study. We also offer current students whose first language is not English, free workshops, and one-to-one tutorials throughout the academic year.
