Pre Courses

Pre-sessional programme

Our pre-sessional programme prepares international students joining Imperial College London to study STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine) degrees.

 

To ensure the health of its students and staff, the College is operating remotely currently. So we have transformed our 6-week and 3-week face-to-face pre-sessional courses into courses that will be delivered and assessed remotely for summer 2020. Please note that the course dates have been brought forward to allow time for successful students to obtain a visa for entry to their main programme and/or to travel to the UK. 

Our online Pre-sessional English courses can help you learn the real academic language and skills that you need for successful study at Imperial. Our 6-week and 3-week pre-sessional courses are now available online for distance learning. Our online courses are specifically designed for students studying science, technology, engineering, maths or medicine (STEMM) at Imperial. They deliver the same academic content as our face-to-face courses and are full-time and intensive.

Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

Life sciences graduates enjoy excellent career opportunities. Most of our graduates study for a higher degree in life sciences and many follow careers in the field, particularly in the research and management areas of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, biomedical science, food technology, agrisciences, and pest, disease and environmental management.

Similar opportunities exist for life scientists in government and independent laboratories involved in medical research, public health, forensic investigation, disease research, conservation, and pollution. Some of our graduates also go on to work in medical careers, become teachers, or even work in the media.

Recent graduates of the Department have become:

  • Research Officer, A*STAR, Singapore

  • Television Researcher, BBC

  • Fungicide Biochemist, Syngenta

  • Analyst, Deutsche Bank

  • PhD student, Cambridge University
