  • Entry requirements
    This course is for graduates who need to improve their competence in English and up-date their subject knowledge before studying on a postgraduate course in the UK . The DEPS course will benefit you if you have a degree from your own country but: * your English is below the level required for direct entry onto a Masters or PhD course in a UK university (the required entry level is usually a 6.5 - 7.0 IELTS score) * you have subject knowledge in the area of your proposed postgraduate degree but would like to have some additional preparation for studying your chosen subject at post-graduate level.

  • Course description
    Course Structure

    The standard course lasts for one academic year or 33 weeks of study. It is divided into 3 Modules, each of progressively increasing difficulty. Each Module is taught as a full-time course over one semester (11 weeks). Because it is a flexible modular programme, the Diploma can also be completed in two semesters or in one semester as a fast-track course. Your entry level of English will determine the length of course you need to do. As a rough guide, if your level of English is Intermediate, you will need to do all three semesters, if you are at Upper-Intermediate level, you should be able to complete the Diploma in two semesters and if you are already at Post-Intermediate, you will probably need just one semester of study.
