We are in the process of confirming details for the 2022 pre-sessional courses. The information on these pages is indicative only. Further information will be available soon. 

Course fees

Pre-sessional course fees for 2022
CourseTotal tuition fees 
(UK, EU and overseas students)
10-week pre-sessional course £4,880 £300
6-week pre-sessional courses £2,990 £300

Whether you choose to study online or on-campus, the course cost will be the same. This is because both courses offer an equally high-quality experience. Find out more about your options on the online and on-campus study page.

The total tuition fees in the table above cover all tuition and use of study resources and multimedia facilities at the University of Bristol. The tuition fees are the same for all students: UK residents, EU residents and international residents. Tuition fees are subject to increase every year. Increases are decided by the Strategic Pricing Group. Tuition fees cannot be paid in instalments.

Accommodation (for on-campus students) and living expenses are not included in the tuition fees. For more information regarding tuition fees, please refer to the University’s tuition fee payments page.

Deposits and refunds

All applicants who receive an offer to study at the Centre for Academic Language and Development will need to pay a non-refundable deposit of the amount shown in the table.

We will deduct this non-refundable deposit from the total tuition fee. We will email you before the start of your course with instructions on how to pay the remaining balance of your tuition fees.

Our refunds policy for tuition fees will be available soon. For more information on refunds contact choosebristol-pg@bristol.ac.uk.

Additional costs

There are some additional costs you need to consider before coming to study. These can be considered under the heading of ‘living expenses’. The University has a comprehensive guide to the cost of living in Bristol.

We do not ask you to print or buy books for your pre-sessional course. We ask you to submit all your work online.


Pre-sessional visa and CAS information will be available soon. 

The pre-sessional course is extremely useful. I have learned how to write more academically and express my points clearly. I can also have an effective discussion with my group members and teachers in the live session. At the beginning of the course, I didn’t have enough confidence to talk with others, but now I can do it!
