UCL Pre-sessional English Courses:
These Academic English courses are designed for international students who are planning to study on a graduate degree programme at either University College London or at another UK institution immediately after completion of the course in September. Many course participants will already hold a conditional or unconditional offer of a place on a Master’s or PhD programme.


UCL Summer English Course for International University Students:

Experience London and enhance your English! A 3-week course giving you the chance to visit several London attractions with a focus on UCL and the capital.


UCL University Preparatory Certificates:
An undergraduate foundation course for international students. These courses are for students who have completed their Secondary / High School education overseas with qualifications that do not allow them direct entry to UCL’s undergraduate degree programmes. Over one academic year, the courses provide an intensive preparation for the academic and linguistic challenges of a top UK degree programme.

SI-UK's service is fast, reliable and efficient. Their consultants are specialists, working closely with all UK universities and, through my consultants' advice and application assistance, I was able to receive offers from my favoured universities.
