About Northumbria University
The Nortumbria University English Language centre provides in-sessional support to international students and also offers a portfolio of short courses for professionals.
Students will experience a range of academic contexts and tasks and develop their ability to deal with the study requirements of a British university whilst improving their academic and social English.
Our programmes aim to help students become confident, independent and reflective learners who are able to devise their own strategies for continuing their English language and academic development both at Northumbria and beyond.
We place great importance on the quality of experience we provide to students from a wide range of backgrounds and countries including the UK & Europe, the Middle East, Africa, South East and East Asia, Latin-America and the Indian Sub continent.
All our English language programmes are accredited by the British Council.
