Students from countries other than the UK may take time to adjust to academic study here, and taking part in this International Pre-Course can help with the process of adjustment. It is for all non-UK students and will prepare you to study, so that you can embark on your degree fully prepared. The course is not primarily about language learning; however, if English is your second or other language, you will develop your confidence, specifically in talking about theatre and performance.
The International Pre-Course is intended for students who are starting undergraduate or postgraduate degree courses in September or October of the same year.
If you become a student on the course, you can expect to:
If you require a visa, please ensure you allow enough time for one to be issued. Central will provide you with a visa letter once registration and payment for the course are complete.
Whether you join Central for one, two or three years, you will experience a richness and diversity that a tourist can only glimpse.
The course aims to:
Monday 21st August to Wednesday 23rd August 2017
Monday 25th September to Wednesday 27th September 2017
August course: apply by June 30th
September course: apply by July 31st
£485 per student
I think it is a great idea to have the pre-course. I was looking for a way to gently get my feet wet and this course helped me do just that. It answered a lot of questions about ways of teaching and learning here at Central. It also helped me align my expectations and have more realistic expectations as far as the assignments and marking and assessment go.
I definitely recommend the international pre-course week because it will boost your confidence in every way possible, both regarding the specific modes of communication and learning at Central and regarding living in London.
I feel so much more confident in general…I felt like I could ask everything I was concerned about without worrying about sounding stupid.
