Extra English support while you study

Teaching and assessment methods in the UK are often very different from your home university. Even students who meet the English language requirement often need extra support with academic English and study skills. Therefore, we offer several ways to support your academic studies.

Self-study materials

A suite of support self-study materials are available. These learning materials have been developed by the English Language Centre to help international students to develop their academic writing and study skills.

Tutorial appointments

The English Language Centre offers individual support to any international student who needs help with assignments. Half-hour individual tutorials will focus on essay format, language accuracy and referencing. Appointments can be made either via Microsoft Teams or face-to-face.
