Pre-Master's programme

Prepare for a Master's at Cardiff

The Pre-Master's prepares you for success on a postgraduate degree at Cardiff University. There are two routes to choose from, with sub-routes within them related to your chosen degree subject. Your start date and duration of the programme will depend on your English language level.

You will study a combination of English language preparation and subject-specific content, and progress to a Master's degree when you complete the programme and achieve the required grades.
