Our English for University Studies (EUS) course has been designed for International students who would like the opportunity to improve their general English language skills in a university environment. The course largely focuses on general English language, with an introduction into academic skills and IELTS Preparation.
The EUS course is suitable for students who are considering applying for an academic course at Anglia Ruskin (or another university) and need to improve their English language skills. We also welcome students who would like to take this course as a stand-alone English programme for their own personal development and prefer to study in a university environment.
During the course you will have the opportunity to develop your English language skills effectively in reading, writing, speaking and listening. There will be an introduction to academic skills including note taking, formal written assignments, and seminar discussion. You will also attend classes on IELTS preparation (to prepare you for an IELTS, to be taken at the end of the programme).
Classes usually consist of lecture based lessons and one-to-one tutorials to discuss your progress and provide additional support where required. As part of the course we also include independent study. You will have full access to our multi-media language centre to further support your studies.
As part of the course you will have the opportunity to join a number of social events both on and off campus. Our social programme is designed to you help you practice your English in a friendly and informal environment, learn about British culture and to support you settling into university life.

At the end of the EUS course you will take an IELTS (this is included in the course fee). If you have applied for an academic course at Anglia Ruskin or Cambridge Ruskin International College and meet the English requirements for your course, you will be able to progress directly onto your programme.
If you need more support to meet the English requirements for your academic course at Anglia Ruskin or with CRIC, you may need to do a Pre-sessional English Course. In this case you might be booked you onto a SELT (there will be no additional charge for this). Please note you will be responsible for covering all transfer costs to the SELT test centre.
We’re here to support your success during your academic life at Anglia Ruskin. We offer a wide-range of English courses, including academic and general English, summer programmes and bespoke courses, as well as in-sessional English language support and foreign languages. We provide a friendly supportive teaching environment, with highly experienced and qualified teaching staff that are dedicated to help you pursue your academic ambitions.
To apply please complete the English with University Studies application form and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You'll also need to send us a copy of your English Test. For international students we would recommend that you take an IELTS for entry onto a EUS course. If you're applying from the EU we can accept other English tests; for more information you can email email@example.com.
For the EUS course you will need to apply for a Short Term Study Visa (previously known as a Student Visitor Visa) but if you're planning to continue onto a Pre-sessional course you may wish to apply for a Tier 4 visa.
The EUS course is suitable for students with a minimum of IELTS 4.0 or above (we would not recommend this course for anyone with an IELTS of more than 6.5). As a general guide we would recommend the longer programmes for applicants with an IELTS range of 4.0-5.0, especially if you are planning to apply for an academic course. The shorter programmes are generally more suitable for applicants of an intermediate level.
