Academic Language and Literacy sessions
Our bespoke, course-specific sessions develop undergraduate and postgraduate students' academic language and literacy.
Every discipline has its own academic culture, which will include styles of communication for different audiences and purposes. We work with schools to create bespoke Academic Language and Literacy (ALL) sessions.
These sessions help students understand the expectations of academic staff and participate successfully in their academic community. Based on a developmental rather than remedial model, they benefit students from all backgrounds. They are not formally assessed or credit bearing.
In collaborating with us, academics also benefit from our expertise and from the flexible, tailored resource we provide.
Schools we work with
We collaborate with schools from every faculty in the University, reaching students who study everything from computer science to history, music to management. In total, we are running discipline-specific ALLs for 23 undergraduate and 45 postgraduate courses in 2023/24.
