The English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Pre-Sessional course at London Metropolitan University forms is offered by the European and Language Services (ELS) programme and runs for a total of twelve weeks. Each twelve-week course is divided into three, four-week sub courses. Typically students are on linked, conditional offers and, as such, are required to complete the entire pre-sessional programme in order to achieve progression onto their chosen pathway.

The majority of students come to study in the UK from abroad and do not have English as a first language. They are from a wide variety of backgrounds and tend to be aged between eighteen and thirty. The language levels of the students are ascertained by a pre-course test and they are placed in classes accordingly.
