Language skills webinars for Falmouth University online courses

Summer programme 6 June - 30 July

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.

Please read the descriptors below and then register via the form at the bottom of the page.
