Durham Unviersity is 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 and we have recently been awarded a University 'Enhancing the Student Experience' grant to further develop discipline-specific strands on the Pre-sessional programme. With increasing numbers of international students coming to Durham, these courses have a significant role in the University's Internationalisation agenda. Durham is 264 miles from London, 187 miles from Birmingham, 125 miles from Edinburgh and 67 miles from York.
