Academic Language and Literacy
Nobody is born speaking academic English. It is something you will need to learn, whether or not English is your first language. Our Academic Language and Literacy sessions help postgraduate taught students succeed in their studies.
Every discipline has its own academic culture and style of communication. We have worked with schools to create discipline-specific sessions, designed to help you meet expectations and communicate effectively.
What you will learn
Looking at feedback given to previous students, you will develop strategies to fulfil subject lecturers' expectations. You will also study academic language specific to your discipline.
Most sessions last around two hours. You will work in small groups, using active and practical learning methods. There will be opportunities to ask questions, discuss any issues and practise everything you learn.
Academic Language and Literacy sessions bear no credits and are not formally assessed.
