Study year abroad

  • If you are thinking of coming to Oxford Brookes for a Study Year Abroad, you may want to include an English language course as part of your programme. Our Pathways University English course can be combined with other modules from the range of subjects in our undergraduate programme.

    Alternatively, you may just want to take a gap year in the UK between high school and university, in which case, take a look at the choice of foundation courses we offer. There will be one to suit you whatever you want to study afterwards.

    What are the options?

    What you can study will depend on your current English language level.

     IELTS 4.5-5.0  English language  English language
