Falmouth University online courses

Autumn 2022

Studying and researching in another language is an amazing achievement but can be challenging no matter how fluent you are. If English is not your first language, our language webinars aim to support and guide you through some of these challenges.

The sessions are run by the Languages EAP Team (English for Academic Purposes) and are free for students and researchers of Falmouth University.

Webinars are delivered via MS Teams,  which you can access via Office 365 using your Falmouth login.

Content is negotiated depending on the language and skills background of the attendees but indicative content includes:

  • Academic style and the language and vocabulary used in formal writing
  • Using your reading in your writing. Paraphrasing and the language of referencing
  • Writing concisely and clearly
  • Smooth writing – using vocabulary and grammar to create flow in your writing

Social English

These weekly sessions consider the historical and cultural background to British society and institutions, and provide an insight into daily life. The language input focuses on functional English for everyday situations and colloquial expressions. We’ll also try to answer any questions that you have about daily life and English language.

Online study groups

This series of weekly workshops is available to any students who have attended the academic English webinars in a previous study block.
