“Our students now have more flexible options than ever before with their chosen higher education path”
Available entirely online, the PMP course aims to improve English language proficiency, study skills, and academic knowledge to adequately prepare for postgraduate study at 16 NCUK member institutions.
Along with raising language proficiency to English for Academic Purposes, the skills students will learn include planning a research project, taking notes in lectures, as well as discussion skills on tutorials and seminars.
“BSC is delighted to add to our university pathways portfolio with a high-quality NCUK program with great master’s degree progression routes,” Steve Phillips, managing director of Pathways and Transnational Education at BSC said.
“Our students now have more flexible options than ever before with their chosen higher education path.”
By studying online, students open career options without the added cost of travel and accommodation, BSC added.
Prospective students need to have studied a bachelor’s degree in a language other than English from a university on a government approved list. They also must have a grade equivalent to a 2:1 and a language level of IELTS 5.5 or equivalent.
English language students are a beneficial source stream for universities to host international students, the sector is often keen to highlight.
The UK ELT industry attracts 550,000 students every year, “many of whom go on to study at our universities,” the interim chief executive of English UK, Jodie Gray reminded recently.
