Depending on your language level when you start, you will be offered a tailored package suitable for you. This will allow you to progress throughout the year and successfully meet the entry requirements of your future degree course whether that is foundation, undergraduate, or postgraduate level.
You will have four terms of study with us and the exact course content will depend on your package. Each term will help you to develop the following important academic language and study skills:
- Language Skills for Academic Studies
- Academic Reading
- Academic Listening and Note-Taking Skills for Lectures
- Academic Writing and Research Skills
- Academic Speaking and Presentation Skills
- Using Academic Sources and Referencing Skills
- Critical Thinking
During the programme, you will build a portfolio of coursework, which will be used as part of your final assessment. Each student will have a personal tutor who will meet you regularly to help you to develop individual targets and to achieve your academic goals.
NON-TEACHING DATES: The University will be closed for all UK public and statutory holidays, and ELTS classes will not be taught on these days.
