Improve your English language skills
Courses to improve your English before you start
The university has its own language institute (Brighton Language Institute). It offers a range of programmes accredited by the British Council for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Our English courses will help you to improve your English for academic study.
You can study one of our English courses to prepare for a degree at the University of Brighton, or to improve your English to apply to other UK universities.
For details visit the Brighton Language Institute.
Students attending a university preparation programme at our International College can also do courses that combine academic preparation with English language tuition. For details see International College.
Degree-focused English for masters students
We also offer a popular extended masters course that combines a degree-focused English language course with a masters degree. It usually requires only one visa application. Find out more information on this Extended Masters route.
