Pre-sessional English courses 
Pre-sessional English courses allow you to study English with the objective of reaching the language requirements necessary to enrol on your chosen undergraduate or postgraduate course. Our online pre-sessional English courses will give you a mix of:

  • live face-to-face online teaching sessions in groups
  • interactive live session activities delivered in an encouraging and supportive teaching style
  • regular, individual tutorials with one of your main teachers
  • guided self-study work, created by our experienced in-house staff, to prepare you for the live face-to-face online sessions
  • a series of guided tasks to complete during the courses, e.g., essay, presentation, research, seminar preparation, discussion preparation, depending on the course.

As well as this, you will be able to develop study skills such as independent learning, critical thinking and research. These skills are all vital for successful study at undergraduate and postgraduate level at DMU Kazakhstan.

If you have already reached the required level, attendance at the pre-sessional is not compulsory but highly recommended.

Non-DMU Kazakhstan students are also welcome to study English at the university on the standard route. 

Courses, fees and dates

CELL is offering three pre-sessional courses in 2022: 12 weeks, 4 weeks and 2 weeks

There are three entry levels beginning in June or July 2022, and each course is intended to raise your English level by the equivalent of 0.5 of an IELTS score.

You should choose your pre-sessional course in relation to your current English language level and the IELTS equivalent level that you need to start your degree course.

So, if you have:

  • IELTS 4.5 (no component below 4.0): 12-week pre-sessional English programme or
  • IELTS 5.0 (no component below 4.5): 6-week pre-sessional English programme or
  • IELTS 5.0 (where a component is below 5.0): 2-week pre- sessional English programme
