The English Language Centre provides an extensive, vibrant and innovative programme of In sessional English Support for students who are already studying at the University but whose first language is not English. 


The In sessional English Support programme from English Language Centre:

  • free of charge
  • taught by highly-experienced, approachable English tutors who are fully committed to helping you develop your language skills
  • provided throughout the academic year, giving ample time for you to make significant improvements to your use of English
  • designed to develop your Academic English skills generally and also, in many cases, to provide very specific support focusing on your own particular subject area 

Regular attendance can make a significant contribution to your performance on your main study programme and help you achieve your full academic potential.

The workshops run in an 8-week block, but you will need to sign up for each session you want to attend.  Each session is self-contained, but also builds on previous content, so you can pick and choose which sessions you come to depending on what you most want to focus on.

  • Reading for Your Assignments: we focus on developing effective strategies for reading academic texts.
