In-sessional English Language and Academic Study Skills Support

Studying at a UK university can be challenging, especially if English is not your first language. Our wide range of in-sessional courses and workshops are designed to support all current international students for whom English is an additional language, so that they are better prepared to tackle assignments and complete all tasks that require a high level of linguistic competence.

Academic Writing Skills, Academic Listening Skills, and Seminar Discussion Skills are only a few examples of the short, free and optional English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses available that can help students gain confidence and increase their chances of achieving excellent results. Individual support is also available through our One-to-one English Language Support sessions and Grammar Clinic five days a week.
