This programme is a 10-week pre-sessional, 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 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. 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 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 will study on a 6-week module aimed at helping them develop the language skills, knowledge and understanding required for doctoral research across all fields of study. Students will study core content relating to research in a UK higher education context alongside material from their own area of research interest, to help them develop their language competence and ability to communicate at an appropriate academic level within their chosen field of study.
