Our Study Skills course gives international students a head start in their studies at the University of Leicester. Academic departments recommend the Study Skills course for all Erasmus, International undergraduates and postgraduates, whatever their level of English.

Can I apply for the Study Skills course?
You must have an unconditional offer to study an academic course at the University of Leicester.
If you hold more than one unconditional offer, you must choose your academic course BEFORE applying for Study Skills.
If you hold an offer for one of our other Presessional English courses (e.g. Presessional 10 weeks or 6 weeks) you cannot apply for Study Skills.
If your academic course starts on 30th September 2013, you can apply for Study Skills. Unfortunately, students whose academic course starts before that date cannot apply for Study Skills.
The Study Skills course develops academic language skills such as academic writing and reading, and introduces academic study skills such as referencing and taking lecture notes.
- Develop skills for writing essays in the UK academic style
- Develop useful study skills to help you succeed in an university environment
- Start using the facilities at the University of Leicester
- Get ready for your academic main course studies
All course materials are developed by the ELTU from genuine academic sources at the University of Leicester.
You will receive grades for your speaking, listening, reading and writing. You will do regular written work, marked by your teacher, including a 2,000 word essay which you will write in your subject area.
What happens after I finish the Study Skills course?
After you finish the Study Skills course, you will begin your main academic programme at the University of Leicester.
After you start your degree, master's, or PhD, you can continue to receive help from the English Language Teaching Unit. The ELTU provides a range of support classes and tutorials for international students studying at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
