More information 


This academic English preparatory programme is designed to prepare international students whose native language is not English for studying in English language programmes at the university level.

The goals of the programme are to help students develop the skills, knowledge and confidence which they will need to successfully complete a degree using English in a variety of academic fields. Students in the program will build on their existing English abilities, learning more about how to use English as a tool for studying at the university level.

This programme will consist of 20 hours of instruction per week for 14 weeks, focusing on six skill areas: reading, listening, writing, speaking, grammar and vocabulary. In each of the areas, emphasis will be placed on helping students develop a set of skills and a body of knowledge about English, which will be crucial for using English successfully to achieve their academic goals. In reading and listening classes, emphasis will be placed on comprehending the complex readings and lectures found in university-level courses and on understanding the structure of these texts. In writing and speaking classes, students will learn how to structure academic papers, how to give presentations, and how to work together in seminar groups using English. Finally, throughout the program, students will have the opportunity to expand their grammar and vocabulary knowledge, accuracy and range.
