Please note that if your offer includes a condition stipulating that you must attend a Pre-Sessional Programme, you must contact the English Language Centre to secure your place on the relevant course before you can register for your main programme of study.Please note that if your offer allows you to use a pre-sessional course to meet a language condition you must book this separately with the English Language Centre.

Durham University aims to help international students with the challenges that academic study in a different country poses by offering a range of in-sessional English language support programmes designed to support your studies.
