English language support

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

Academic and Professional English

For students studying on the Cornwall campuses, there are small, weekly sessions during term time. You'll be grouped by your subject area and/or type of assignment e.g. dissertations. The seminars focus on the advanced language skills needed for your course and assignments. If English is not your first language, it's strongly recommended that you sign up at the beginning of term to see how they can help you make the most of your studies. 

There are also webinars for Falmouth Online and Falmouth Flexible students - details

Social English

Running weekly during term time, these workshops focus on functional English for everyday situations: e.g., being polite; making small talk; and meeting and greeting. They also discuss aspects of popular culture and provide an opportunity to ask any questions that you have about daily life and English language.

How to register

Details of the timetables and how to register for the programme will  be published in September. In the meantime, please contact the Languages team with any questions.
