Pre-Master’s courses

We offer two Pre-Master’s courses that prepare international students for postgraduate study at the University of Liverpool:

Pre-Master’s course structure

  • Academic skills modules
    As a Pre-Master’s student, you will develop advanced academic skills including research, essay writing, presentation and analysis.
  • Subject modules
    You will develop knowledge of your chosen area of study so that you have an advanced level of understanding. You will then focus on the particular topics and skills needed to excel in your postgraduate degree at the University of Liverpool.
  • Student tutorials
    You will be assigned a Learning Support Tutor who will work with you throughout your academic course at the College, and support you in achieving your study goals. At these regular meetings, tutors offer valuable advice to help develop both study skills and knowledge, and fully equip students for success at the University.
  • Academic and language support
    Academic and language support is integrated into all of our university preparation courses to increase your confidence in your English language abilities and subject understanding.

Guaranteed progression

All modules are specifically tailored to meet the needs of international students and designed in line with related progression degrees at the University.

On successful completion of a Pre-Master’s course to the required level, students are guaranteed progression to a related University of Liverpool postgraduate degree.
