These extremely popular classes are:

  • 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 In sessional English Support course is delivered by University of Liverpool.

Classes are available throughout the academic year at a range of times during the week. In the case of discipline-specific classes, times are agreed with your department so that you will be free to attend and they will not interfere with your main programme of study. 

Programme Structure

Discipline-specific English classes focus on language use in different subject areas, such as within the Humanities and Social Sciences, or in Science and Engineering.

In a growing number of cases, where requested by individual academic departments, very specific support is provided. In these cases, the English Language Centre works closely with departments in designing courses which relate to your core academic modules. In this way, English classes can, for instance, work with key texts relating to your subject area, consider language issues relating to departmental coursework and help you prepare for assessments or examinations.
