Course content

This course is for you if you need to improve your English language skills and subject knowledge of electronic engineering before going on to a Masters course. You improve your language fluency and academic vocabulary, develop your academic skills, and gain experience of western methods of teaching and learning so that you can progress onto a relevant Masters course in our School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering.

At Essex, you can progress onto our MSc Computer Networks and Security, MSc Electronic Engineering, or MSc Telecommunication and Information Systems.

Our Essex Pathways Department offers some of the best routes for international students to enter higher education in the UK. Our innovative courses and programmes have proved very successful with international students and have also attracted UK students because of the distinctive learning environment we offer.

If you are an international student, you may find that the education system in the UK is slightly different from other countries and, sometimes, that the transition to the British system can be challenging. Our courses help you to settle in and adapt to life in the UK.

Alongside improving your academic English skills, you also gain knowledge and understanding of the technical aspects of electronic engineering systems.

We are home to many of the world’s top engineers, and our work is driven by creativity and imagination as well as technical excellence. We are ranked Top 10 in the UK in the 2015 Academic Ranking of World Universities, with more than two-thirds of our research rated ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ (REF 2014).
