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.
In the first 4 weeks, students will be introduced to the culture and context of postgraduate academic life in the UK.
After that, students are taught on a 6-week module taught in partnership between academics from the University of Leeds Language Centre and from the faculties of Science including Faculties of Biological Sciences, Medicine and Health, Engineering and Physical Sciences and Environment, 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 their field. 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.
