International students constitute a significant proportion of the student body in UK higher education (HE). In 2010-11 there were 428,225 international students, a 6% increase on the previous year, representing 13% of all first degree students and 46% of all taught postgraduates (Higher Education Statistics Agency, cited in UKCISA, no date). Although the body of literature on the internationalisation of UK Higher education is growing, there are still relatively few accounts of the first-hand experiences of these international students - particularly on the question of transition into UK HE. All face the challenge of making the transition into the UK academic culture and its modes of teaching, and the demands of HE study in their chosen disciplines.\ud \ud This study seeks to examine individual accounts of a small number of international students at London Metropolitan University who had completed a pre-sessional Academic English course before their disciplinary studies. The aim was to find out how effectively they felt that the Pre-sessional course had prepared them for those studies, and to help inform the future development of the course, as well as gaining wider insight into the support needs of international students.
