English language support

The EAP Team (English for Academic Purposes) works with students and researchers of the universities in Cornwall for whom English is a second or other language. We aim to help students and researchers develop their language skills, and build confidence for living and studying in the UK.

There are a range of free online sessions for new international/EU students and researchers at Falmouth University and the University of Exeter, Cornwall campuses. All our sessions offer a relaxed, friendly environment to meet others from around the world and to ask the tutors any questions about university and life in Cornwall. Come along to just one or to all the sessions, they include:

  • Subject-specific Academic English seminars 
  • Social English workshops
  • Tutorials
