This International Graduate programme explores the communication and comprehension of academic subjects in English across a range of disciplines at postgraduate level and beyond, equipping you for the increasingly interdisciplinary world of the 21st century. We will help you to improve your knowledge and use of academic English grammar and vocabulary, and to develop an awareness of the expectations of study at postgraduate level.
You will improve your general academic skills of taking notes from lectures, dealing with long reading texts and a heavy reading load, taking an active part in academic discussions and giving presentations. You will also build an e-portfolio of general academic essays and more subject-specific types of writing.
You will leave the programme fully equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that you need to succeed at a top British university, and the confidence to communicate your ideas with professors, peers or the public.
