English Language Preparation

Improve your English 

If you do not meet the entry requirements to study the International Foundation Year, you can improve your level of English by first studying an English language course taught at the Leeds International Study Centre. 

English Language Preparation (ELP) 

The ELP is a one-term course that aims to boost your English language skills and raise your IELTS to the required level for the academic course you wish to study at the Leeds International Study Centre. You can study the ELP before you start your academic course. Once you complete the ELP (and achieve the required grades) you will progress to your academic course at the Leeds International Study Centre.
