Course Overview

The 6-week Pre-Sessional English online course for undergraduate students allows you to develop the specific academic language and study skills that you will need in order to follow and engage in your future degree subject.

By the end of the programme, you should be able to:

  • Communicate with accuracy and fluency, using appropriate vocabulary and academic style to clearly and coherently convey meaning in an academic genre relevant to undergraduate study.
  • Apply online tools to conduct guided library research, evaluate and use a range of sources to provide evidence to support analysis of relevant theories within your discipline (or a related area); and display your findings in an appropriate medium.
  • Recognise the need to adhere to conventions of citation and reference to support claims and acknowledge others' work.
  • Demonstrate the use of spoken academic discourse with a good range of vocabulary on various discipline-related topics to both specialist and non-specialist audiences.
  • Implement a range of listening strategies to interpret others' speech in lecture-style settings to create summaries and syntheses of the information presented.
  • Critically reflect on processes of learning and set future goals for undergraduate study.
