"Academic writing is quite different from general English writing. Apart from the way of presenting it, I also aim to acquire some language guidance. This course has exceeded all my expectations. The workshops are very informative and interactive. I have gained a lot of practical knowledge and insights from both teachers and classmates, which are all very useful to my degree studies".

Studying abroad is a challenging experience and necessitates certain skills to overcome most difficulties that might be encountered. These difficulties are mainly experienced due to encountering a new education system which typically involves learning a second language. The pre-sessional course enables obtaining skills needed to manage and overcome such difficulties. It mainly concerns academic English which is a crucial step before entering the university. It also organises many social events that facilitate adapting to Glasgow. For these reasons, I decided to apply for the pre-sessional course to enable me attaining a good level of learning academic and general English beside being socially active. The application process was straightforward and submitted through website of the University of Glasgow. After finishing the course, I became more confident in my English particularly academic writing.
