Description of centre

The Centre for English Language Education (CELE) offers you the opportunity to develop your English language skills at one of the world's top universities.

Nottingham's vibrant global community is made up of students from more than 150 countries. We are accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English in the UK, so you can be sure that our teaching, facilities and support are high-quality.

If you want the best English language and study skills preparation for your future academic studies, you can take a presessional course. You can progress through up to four English for academic purposes stages, depending on your language level. Courses range from 5–40 weeks, with start dates throughout the year.

CELE offers specialist summer courses for students going on to study business, architecture and built environment, engineering and law. There is also a four-week programme for students who already have an unconditional offer and would like to improve their study and language skills.

The courses will help you to improve your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills through real academic tasks such as library-based written assignments, presentations and seminar discussions.

If you are completing an academic course at Nottingham, you will benefit from free academic English language support (insessional programmes) to help you develop your English and study skills.
