Academic Reading Courses
French, German and Italian
Part-Time Courses: October-March
Academic Reading Courses in French, German and Italian are offered from beginners to advanced levels and are especially designed to assist research students with the acquisition of reading from the very beginning of their graduate studies. These courses have been taught successfully over the last 10 years.
All courses are taught by language tutors with experience in the methodology of reading skills. Students are introduced to a number of core concepts of the language and specific aspects of reading at the respective levels, as well as selecting text material relevant to their own research for analysis. In the term 3 workshops particular attention is paid to participants' individual needs.
Participants who complete a course are able to read and translate complex texts at the respective levels, as well as scan research material in order to assess its suitability.
UCL graduate research students may apply for funding to cover course fees. Please note that the Graduate School will only consider funding students who, after they have registered for their degree, unexpectedly find acquiring an additional foreign language is ESSENTIAL to carry out their research (most students requiring languages will already possess these language skills on entry to their degree programme). Please see here for application procedure.
