Contact Our School

Durham University Language Centre:
Durham University is a world-class university situated in New Elvet, Durham, North East England, 42 miles (68 Kilometers) south of Newcastle Upon Tyne. The Language Centre offers year long courses in English language proficiency for students hoping to progress to university courses: a lower level Preparatory English Course and a higher level Certificate in English and Academic Study. These courses equip international students for study in Durham and other UK Institutions, concentrating on improving not only academic English language skills but also wider study, research and academic culture skills.

Alongside the general pre-sessional programmes, we have a separate Pre-MBA course. Having such tailor-made programmes is an important part of the Language Centre's development plans over the next few years. With increasing numbers of international students coming to Durham, these courses have a significant role in the University's Internationalisation agenda.
