Language Skills Development

Studying and researching in another language is an amazing achievement but can be challenging, no matter how fluent you are. The language skills programme aims to support and guide you through some of these challenges.

The programme is delivered by the Languages EAP Team (English for Academic Purposes) and is free for students and researchers of the University of Exeter in Cornwall.

The following workshops are running during the autumn term, and you can join at any time. Register your interest, and we'll be in touch with details.

Subject-Specific Academic Language Skills

Open to undergraduate and post-graduate taught students, these weekly workshops run in parallel to your degree course. They aim to develop the advanced writing and language skills you’ll need for your studies. You'll be grouped by level (undergraduate or post-graduate) and discipline area to allow for a focus on specific language and style e.g. Language for Renewable Energy Engineering, Language for Business and Law, or Language for Biodiversity and Conservation. The focus of each session is negotiated depending on upcoming assignments and the group's language interests. If English is not your first language, it's strongly recommended that you join the sessions to see how we can help you make the most of your studies.  

Language in Use

These weekly 60 min workshops are a chance to review grammar, discover new vocabulary and explore functional, everyday language for living in the UK. A great place to ask questions and meet students from across the universities.
