English programmes at INTO University of Exeter

Our Pre-sessional courses at the INTO University of Exeter Centre are designed to improve your English language skills to the standard required for your chosen degree in September. 

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, our 6, 10 and 18 week Pre-sessional courses will be running both online and on campus from April to August 2021.

If you have taken any other acceptable test and wish to confirm if a pre-sessional English course is required or recommended, please contact us

If you successfully complete a pre-sessional course at INTO University of Exeter and meet the progression requirements for entry to your academic programme of study, it is not necessary to undertake an additional IELTS or TOEFL test. Please note that we do not accept pre-sessional courses delivered by other INTO centres or organisations.

If you do not meet the pre-sessional entry requirements, the Centre also offers an Academic English course. This course will be offered online only from June to September 2020.
