English Examinations
The Management English course prepares students for the IELTS test, and students can sit this test in Sheffield. Students wishing to enrol for a course of academic study in Sheffield (a Masters degree, for example) will be entered for the University of Sheffield English Proficiency Test, which is accepted as equivalent to the IELTS test by both Sheffield University and Sheffield Hallam University.

Commercial Visits
Visits to British businesses and organisations are arranged. The visits provide a chance to meet British business people in a work situation. Students are encouraged to ask questions and to extract relevant business information from these situations. Students broaden their general knowledge of western business practice and gain insights into their own special areas.

Examples of visits are:

- a steel company
- a hospital laborartory
- Sheffield Chamber of Commerce
- Meadowhall shopping complex management suite

Length of Course
The course runs throughout the year, and students may join the course at any time. Details of term dates and entry requirements are shown on the application form. There are approximately 22 hours of tuition per week (including commercial visits).

Maximum Class Size
The maximum class size for English Language is 15 students.

Certificate of Successful Attendance
A University of Sheffield certificate of successful attendance will be presented to students who complete their course.

Comments on the Pre-Masters course from recent past students

Marie-Helen Zabe (France)
“My overall assessment of the Pre-MBA course is highly positive. The teaching is of a high quality and there is a good professional background link between theory and practice.”

Ms Claudia Loyola (Chile)
“The Pre-MBA English course has been really useful for me in order to develop the necessary skills to face my current MSc in HRS course. The commercial visits are really interesting and offer a real advantage to understand business topics and that has been a real help now.”

Dr Victor A. Pushnykh (Russia)
“This course has enabled me not only to really communicate with my business partners and to understand much more fully the commercial ideas they assume but also to create my own ideas on how to successfully run my business...The tutors were wonderful, hospitable and sophisticated. I highly recommend all managers doing international business to join this programme.”
