Academic Language Skills

Weekly workshops which aim to develop the advanced writing and language skills needed for study and research. As far as possible, sessions are organised by level and discipline area to allow for a focus on subject-specific language and style.

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.

Sounds of English

These  workshops focus on the pronunciation and delivery of spoken English, and how to develop your speaking and listening skills.
