Pre-Masters Courses in the UK

What is a Pre-Masters?

A Pre-Masters is for international students who need to improve their English and develop research, academic writing and seminar skills ahead of a taught masters degree. Pre-Masters programmes in the UK are designed to prepare Nigerian students fully for studying at postgraduate level and deliver high quality students.

Courses range in length from ten weeks to twelve months and provide an essential grounding for successful postgraduate study. A Pre-Masters will greatly increase the English language and study skills required for successful postgraduate study, as well as familiarising international students with UK teaching methods.
