Choi studied Pre-sessional English at UAL in 2021 and shares her experience of the course. She is now studying her Masters in Innovation Management, at Central Saint Martins.
The pre-sessional course taught me a lot, and not just about English! We also learnt how to do Harvard Referencing, write essays, prepare presentations, listen to lectures, do gist reading - and a lot more.
What are your favorite memories from your Pre-sessional English course?
It was an opportunity to improve not only my English language, but also experience British culture and academic skills to help me succeed at my Masters.
Tell us about your Pre-sessional English tutors, what were they like?
I was taught by Stephen and Jay. They helped me a lot. The skill set I was trained in includes: writing essays, preparing presentations, note-taking, lecture and seminar listening skills, as well as practicing conversation and relevant vocabularly.
What were you classmates like?
Our class was all masters students, so we shared similar challenges and goals which was great. One of my Pre-sessional classmates is on the same masters as me now!
Did you take part in any extra activities outside of your Pre-sessional classes, like Art Club?
Yes, I joined Art Club! Not only did it help me finish my final presentation with confidence, but it was also a great opportunity to meet students from other classes, see their artwork and develop critical thinking.
