The Preparatory Courses in English for Biology program at the University of Pécs is tailored to aid international students without native-level English proficiency in elevating their language skills to the requisite level for successful admission to biology studies. Comprising three stages—Milestone, Upgrade, and Gateway—the program effectively caters to diverse language needs. The Milestone Stage provides crucial support for students aiming to fulfill minimal English requirements, while the Upgrade Stage focuses on language development in an academic context and the Gateway Stage is crafted for students with exceptional English proficiency. Each stage consists of 400 contact hours, and the program spans 15 months with a total of 1200 lessons covering the Milestone, Upgrade, and Gateway Stages. Specialized subject instruction is integrated to deepen field knowledge, guided by experienced educators, and the program culminates with an internationally recognized ECL language exam (upper-intermediate or advanced).
There is no language requirement for the preparatory courses of ISC. However, the length of your course depends on the level of your English knowledge.
