University of Surrey International Study Centre
The Management, Finance, Hospitality and Tourism Pre-Masters programme provides the subject knowledge, language proficiency and study skills you need to progress to postgraduate study in a related field at the University of Surrey.
During the one and two-semester programme you will study a core unit of general subject skills and subject-specific units, which are carefully designed for your academic development. If you are studying the three-semester programme, the first semester will focus on improving your English language skills to the required level.
All students also take the Academic English Skills module, the Student Leadership Programme and are eligible to enter the Sustainable Enterprise Competition.
The first semester focuses on developing your English language so you reach the level required to progress to Semester 2. You will work to develop the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking, presenting and developing language accuracy and range in general academic contexts. Core language-related academic skills such as participating in discussions and responding to texts, effective note-taking and essay writing are also introduced.
You will also focus on assessment preparation and practice to be able to show independent learning skills, literacy and critical-thinking skills.
This programme can lead to one of the postgraduate degrees in the table below. Grades and progression degree titles are guidelines and subject to change.
The following degrees are offered with a placement year and have additional requirements:
