One-to-one English Language Support

The International College’s one-to-one English language support sessions will help improve and build your confidence in any aspect of English language and academic study skills.

The free sessions are for all students enrolled at the University of Lincoln for whom English is an additional language. You will meet with one of the experienced Senior English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Tutors who will provide tailored, individual consultations to help improve your skills.

Sessions are usually available Monday to Friday throughout most of the year (including summer).

Please note:
While this is not a proofreading or an editing service, the tutor will support you to improve your work.
You are welcome to book up to two appointments per week on different days.

If what you would like to discuss is not listed, please click the blue ‘Book Appointment’ button and select ‘Other’. You will then need to provide details about what you would like to cover during the session.

  • Sentence structure
  • Paragraph structure

What you need to do:

On the booking form, you will be asked ‘What do you want help with at your appointment?’ In this box, give as much detail as possible about the speaking support you require, providing specific words if possible.

Examples:

  • ‘I need help with pronouncing the academic vocabulary used frequently in my seminars' with words such as ’juxtaposition, acknowledge, and technique’.
  • ‘I need help pronouncing specific terminology for my subject: ‘conglomerate, globalisation’.

This will help the tutor prepare for your appointment.
