English Language Online Courses
English Language Online Courses (ELOC) are for students who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and have been unable to take the IELTS (or equivalent) during the application period.
ELOCs are intensive English language courses for students who need to improve their English language and study skills prior to enrolling on their chosen degree programme at UWS. The courses are designed to help you achieve the University's English language entry requirement for degree level study (IELTS 6.0 overall, with no component lower than 5.5).
Note: We are in the process of finalising the Tuition Fees for ELOCs which will run in academic session 2022/23. Please check back for more details.
