Applying for a Pre-sessional Course

If you are eligible to take a Pre-sessional course, this condition should be added automatically to your Durham University offer once it has been issued. You can then choose whether you wish to attend the Pre-sessional course or re-take a language test instead as a way to meet your language condition.

If you have not had a Pre-sessional condition added to your offer, and think you should have, please contact to see if it can be added- it may be that you need to provide more (or different) evidence of your current language ability.

If you have already met your language condition, but wish to take Pre-sessional for the boost in skills and experience, you can also email to request this be added.
