Which English language courses do you need to take?

Use the table below to work out which courses you should take. Each course will raise your English level by the equivalent of 0.5 of an IELTS score.

If you have already reached the required level, attendance at the Pre-sessional is not compulsory but highly recommended. Non-DMU students are also welcome to study English at the University on the standard route.

All students applying for MPhil/PhD study require IELTS 6.5 in order to access their courses. Students applying for undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses should refer to specific course pages for the required IELTS level. 

If you have been offered a place in the Faculty of Technology or for Art and Design subjects, and have already reached the equivalent of IELTS 5.0 or 5.5, you should use Route 2.
