Each Wednesday between 11:00 - 15:00 (BST) we're running a series of live online, interactive sessions to help you develop your study skills and prepare for university life. We'll have sample undergraduate-level lectures from leading academics as well as English language lessons for our international students.

Once you have registered for the programme, we'll send you a link each week to book your sessions for the next event. You can join as many or as few sessions as you want. The programme is open to all - whether you're joining Brunel in September, or planning to study elsewhere.

Register for our online English lessons below. Open to all international students, the lessons will run for four weeks and will then be repeated - you can either follow the lessons as a course or just choose one or two - it's up to you!
