Breaking down the language barriers in academic study and everyday life.
The University has introduced an English Language Support Service to help assist with the language needs of International and European University students and members of the public. There are a range of opportunities to improve both academic and general English with taught year long modules, regular ‘drop in clinics’ and workshops as well as General English classes supported by trainee teachers under supervision.
The Language Academy offers English Language Support designed to address specific issues you may be having with use of English in an academic setting.
There is no need to enrol or register! - Attend any of the sessions as much as you like across the academic year.
All events are supported by a team specialist academics of English Language who are trained to assess and help with your personal language needs.
