These pre-sessional programmes are open to all students wishing to improve their academic literacy in preparation for a degree programme at Durham. This will normally be prospective students who hold a conditional offer of a place to study at Durham. Given the focus on foundational research and study skills, many students with unconditional offers also find these programmes an excellent preparation for the academic road ahead.


Our four-week Preparatory Academic Research Skills & English (PARSE) programme will be of particular interest to students who have IELTS 6.5 or higher, but have little or no experience of studying at a UK university. The programme prepares students for coping with a degree course at Durham by integrating library-based research skills, critical approaches to reading and thesis-based academic essay writing.
