The International Pre-Masters Certificate in Business and English is designed to prepare non-native English speaking students for postgraduate study in business related disciplines.

The aims of the course are to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to confidently achieve at postgraduate level in a business discipline.

The course aims to develop your understanding of key business vocabulary, theories and concepts integral to postgraduate business courses, and your linguistic competence in specific Business English to enable successful study at postgraduate level. It also aims to develop your academic, cognitive, meta-cognitive and professional skills required for successful study at postgraduate level in a business-related area, and to provide you with the necessary personal, professional, interpersonal and key skills to enable development as independent, autonomous learners in preparation for postgraduate study.

• Study and Research Skills for Business develops your language, academic and study skills
• Principles of Business provides you with a broad exploration of key contemporary business issues

You have the opportunity to carry out research projects with local and regional organisations, which will be an enriching cultural experience and enhance your employment prospects.
