This course will help you improve your English language and academic skills, and develop your knowledge of life at university in the UK. You will build on your existing knowledge of English and develop academic skills such as taking notes, contributing to seminars, making presentations, reading strategies, and writing essays and reports. You'll gain a head start by learning about the University before you start your main course and reach the required level of English to be successfully accepted to the University.
*Please note this course will require you to be on campus.*
This in-person course is taught with the University's Virtual Learning Environment, Canvas. You'll go to online sessions, work on tasks in your own time and practise your English in online chatrooms and group projects.
Plus, you'll have weekly tutorial sessions to keep in touch with your lecturer. When you pass the course, you'll get a Foundation Certificate of Achievement in English for Academic Purposes and have the English language skills to study your chosen course.
The four modules in this course will help you develop your English skills for academic study, including listening, note-taking, reading, summarising, writing essays and reports, doing research and making presentations. You'll have around 400 hours of contact time with your lecturer over the 12 weeks of the course.
