Programme specification:

This programme is an English language pre-sessional designed to support students who either do not meet the English language requirements for their chosen postgraduate research programme or who wish to gain a better understanding of the academic language and literacy practices in their area of study.

This programme will help students develop the language skills, knowledge and understanding required for doctoral research across all fields of study. Students will study core content relating to postgraduate 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. Students will have the chance to work both individually and with others through a series of classes, seminars and tutorials.
