Degree Preparation Programmes

Preparing You to Succeed

Studying in another country and language can be challenging, but also very rewarding. Our degree preparation programmes are designed to help you develop the English language, study skills, and knowledge you will need to succeed in your chosen subject area.

Our degree preparation programmes include the International Foundation Year, International Year One, Pre-Master's, and Pre-sessional English Language Preparation programme.

From day one of your programme, you will become part of the University of Lincoln’s diverse student community and will have access to a range of specialist support services and facilities. On this page, you can find out more information about our degree preparation programmes and the opportunities available to you after successfully completing your preparation studies.

Engineering International Foundation Year

The University of Lincoln’s Engineering International Foundation Year is designed to help students prepare for an undergraduate degree programme in our School of Engineering. The programme aims to prepare students for degree-level study, by equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful on their chosen full degree programme.

Pre-sessional English Language Preparation Courses

Depending on your English language ability, you may need to join a PELP programme to meet the entry requirement before progressing to an International Year One programme at the University.

You can study on our PELP courses for either 5 or 10 weeks.  They are designed to help you develop a range of essential English language skills.  If you join this programme you will be taught in small groups by a team of experienced tutors.  You will have the opportunity to learn more about British culture and the academic environment of a UK university.
