The English Language Centre (ELC) is the University of Liverpool’s specialist English language facility for international students.
If you need to improve your English before you can start your main programme of study at the University of Liverpool, we offer specially designed Pre-sessional Courses ranging from intensive short courses to all year round study.
We also provide a free comprehensive programme of In-sessional English support for current international undergraduate, postgraduate taught and research students and staff at the University, to run your academic studies or work.
These programmes can be discipline specific focusing on relevant language used in particular subject areas or general academic English suitable for all international students and staff.
Another popular course we offer is Activate English, our General English language course
for personal, professional and academic purposes, with a choice of start dates and entry levels and full- or part-time options.
In addition to our wide range of English language courses for individuals, we design and deliver Tailor-made courses to meet the requirements of organisations and their staff.
The ELC is also a registered IELTS testing centre running over 20 tests a year and provides IELTS training year round.
