Pre-sessional stage 4 constitutes a preparation programme for international students whose first language is not English and who are intending to begin a postgraduate degree at the University of Surrey.

If you intend to study on one of our pre-sessional English language programmes and you require a Tier 4 (General) Student visa, you will usually need to provide a valid UKVI IELTS Academic report, which is a UKVI approved Secure English Language Test (SELT). Grades required can be seen on the individual course pages.
