This programme is an English language content-based presessional designed to support students who either do not meet the English language requirements for their chosen post-graduate programme or who wish to gain a better understanding of the academic language and literacy practices in their area of study.
The 4-week introductory module will help students develop the language skills, knowledge and understanding required for postgraduate study in the fields of Social Sciences and Arts. Students will study subject specific content to help them develop their language competence and ability to communicate at an appropriate academic level within their chosen field of study. The 4-week module will introduce students to the culture and context of postgraduate academic life in the UK and begin to develop facility in sourcing and analysing appropriate texts, planning and organising academic work and developing the ability to communicate with others in an academic context.
After that, students are taught on a 6-week module taught in partnership between academics from the University of Leeds Language Centre and the School of Education, allowing the learning of language to be integrated and built around key content areas, and students to develop a deeper understanding of how knowledge and theory are communicated in their own subject.
This programme will help students develop the language skills, knowledge and understanding required for postgraduate study in the field of Education. Students will study subject specific content to help them develop their language competence and ability to communicate at an appropriate academic level within their chosen field of study.
Each 2 week block will be based around an introductory content lecture. Students will work on understanding this content and the language used, alongside that of core texts, through a series of language classes and seminars. Students will have the chance to work both individually and with others. The final assessments will be based around individual pieces of work, involving some element of independent research.
