The combination of well-informed, adaptive and progressive academic staff and programming is what all students need to ensure their highest potential for overall success. Completing a Master’s degree is a challenging endeavor for many and can be further complicated by students’ relative familiarity with a second/foreign language of study as well as the educational customs and culture found in a foreign universities. Such customs will present students with challenges including academic style, referencing, critical thought, developing arguments and conducting primary research; all of which, the academic staff of BEO, will assist with to ensure you are best prepared for the demands of MA study at Western academic institutions.

beo’s academic staff possesses an intimate awareness of the difficulties, even the most successful IELTS/TOEFL, students are likely to face once enrolled in graduate level courses. The NCUK PMP is created and implemented using an awareness of the reality that, even with high IELTS scores (7-8.5) many students feel unprepared for the rigors of a Master’s program. Whereas the IELTS writing section requires a 250 word essay, works of up to 20,000 words will be required for a Master’s. The reading and lecture components similarly outweigh that which students will experience.  Educators at beo build courses around this knowledge.

The awareness of international academic best practices and the employment of validated materials, coupled with a broad awareness of the distinct challenges facing Japanese postgraduate students enables beo’s academic staff to provide a high-quality and extensive preparation course for students interested in enrolling in overseas education. We use our wealth of experience in working with Japanese students along with our collective experience in academia to infuse our courses and classrooms with the most relevant and applicable information, techniques and skills (wide ranging study, note taking and presentation skills), all of which you can use to ensure your success with your future academic career.

The NCUK Pre-Masters Programme at beo is the most progressive, well-informed and adaptive pre-master’s program available. Students can study with the assurance that they are receiving a top-notch education from elite educators in an ultra-modern educational environment. In the same way, beo’s students can embark on their University work with the confidence of having been thoroughly prepared for what awaits them in the areas of life abroad, university expectations and academic work.

Overseas you will face many rewarding challenges. Your experiences of using a new language and living in a new culture and society will ultimately enrich you and help you to better understand the world and yourself. This is also true of the challenges you will face as a learner. You may find that the ideas and expectations of UK universities are different from those you have known so far. You may come to rethink your own personal or cultural beliefs about learning. You will start to think in new and different ways.

The NCUK Pre-Masters Programme prepares you for the practical, academic and intellectual tasks ahead of you. On the programme you will be introduced to assignments and teaching of the type and level you should expect overseas. You will become familiar with UK higher education practices. You will learn how to evaluate evidence and carry out research. You will be required to complete extended written assessments, culminating in a dissertation linked to your future study.

The PMP delivers the skills needed to progress in your learning now and in the future. You will develop your EAP skills, so that you can communicate effectively in a range of academic contexts, such as in formal presentations and seminar discussions. The programme teaches you the transferable and critical skills you need to solve problems, to discover new ideas and to develop in your studies, your career and your life.

Our programme is unique in Japan, because its NCUK syllabuses and assessments have been rigorously developed to build the skills students across the world need to succeed in their overseas studies. Furthermore, as an NCUK college we provide you with guaranteed access to a university overseas, on completion of your studies. If you are serious about becoming a more independent, resilient and open-minded learner, then study with BEO is your next step.
