Pre-Master’s Programme (PMP)

Our Master's Foundation Programme is now titled 'Pre-Master's Programmes' and taught at level 5. The Pre-Master's Programme is a two semester programme, with guaranteed progression* to a wide range of Business-related Master’s degrees at the University of Hull. You will study your Master's programme at our Centre located at the heart of the University of Hull campus.

Extended 4 term programme available in September.

Who is this programme designed for?

This programme is designed to prepare international students for postgraduate study in the UK. The PMP will allow you to improve your English while learning the study skills and research methods that you will need during your Master’s degree studies. Depending on the length of the programme you study, you may also study academic modules relating to your chosen progression route.

How long will I study for?

Each semester consists of roughly 13 weeks. The weekly hours of study varies by term with students on average studying around 18-23 (and up to 25) hours per week. 

English Language forms up to six hours of your timetable, is compulsory for students who are below the required level for progression, and will be integrated into the teaching of academic subjects as well as being taught separately if you need additional support. Students who are at or above the required English level for progression are likely to follow a reduced timetable.

Students will be expected to timetable self-study hours in addition to the classroom-based hours.

You will study the following modules plus English language plus one further module relating to your intended progression degree.

  • Research Project
