With the Accelerated Pre-Masters Programme you will receive excellent academic and English language teaching you need for postgraduate success within just 12 weeks (plus induction and exam week). Start in September, and alongside completing your pathway programme faster, you will also progress to the University of Strathclyde in January.
You can choose from two subject routes, depending on the degree you want to study: Business and Social Sciences or Engineering and Sciences. Once you successfully complete this programme and achieve the required grades, you can start your chosen Masters degree at Strathclyde.
This programme helps international students enhance their skills in preparation for postgraduate study in the UK. If you have successfully completed your undergraduate degree in your home country, and need to develop your English or academic skills to study your Masters at the University of Strathclyde, this 12 week programme is for you.
This programme is also a great option if you have a higher IELTS score than what is required for our two-term Pre-Masters Programme.
This course has been designed by expert academics to help international students progress to the University of Strathclyde. Across the 12 weeks, you will study a mix of specialist core modules and route modules based on your chosen progression degree. The modules you study will boost your academic and English language skills in preparation for your chosen postgraduate degree.
