Key course features

STUDY SKILLS + MASTERS     

  • Study skills modules incorporating integrated skills for PG studies, academic skills and business communication.
  • Masters (see course list).

ENGLISH and STUDY SKILLS + MASTERS

  • Pre-sessional English language preparation for the achievement of the GELT 6.0 incorporating integrated skills for PG studies.
  • Masters (see course list).

All modules on offer aim to enable students to further enhance their existing skills to achieve improved accuracy and general proficiency in your chosen masters programme. Alongside academic study skills and English language (for those who choose the pre-sessional), the main focus is the further development of study skills and the acquisition of socio-cultural awareness. 

You will be supported throughout your learning with written interim reports on your work, and oral feedback is provided on all courses at regular meetings with tutors. 

Which course is right for me?

The choice, of course, will be determined by your current level of English and the English language entry criteria respectively. The pre-sessional course will enable you to enter your chosen masters programme, having improved all of your four language skills (speaking, reading, listening and writing) to an appropriate level, and you will be able to communicate accordingly in most academic and social situations.

Students with the required English level will take the Study Skills + Masters option.

Both courses will lead to entry on Wrexham Glyndŵr University’s postgraduate programmes at the end of September.
