English Language Skills for Academic Purposes
Prerequisite for entry
Students must be non-native speakers of English.
Aims and objectives
The course aims to further develop awareness and use of the conventions of academic English among students from other learning cultures. More specifically the course will further develop reading and writing ability in a variety of academic registers as well as developing listening and speaking skills through lectures, seminars and presentations within a university context. In doing so, we aim to help advance the ability to perform in all four skills related to students’ own degree programme.
The course will cover linguistic structures of relevance to academic study (with reference to a variety of styles and registers from a range of academic authentic material). Various transferable skills will also be developed.
