English Language Modules

English Language Support Services

If English is not your first language and you are looking to improve your English language skills, the Language Academy offers two year-long modules.  The modules are open to members of the public for a fee, and students can take a module as a credit-bearing elective, or as an additional class for a discounted fee. Whichever option you choose there is no difference in the course content.
