Courses are tailored and timed according to the types of assessments students will complete on their academic courses.
Courses are specific either to individual programmes, or to schools.
E.g. in the School of Biological Sciences we have a programme-specific course for MSc Leadership for Sustainable Development and MSc Advanced Food Safety, plus a School-specific course for all other Postgraduate Taught international students.
The In-Sessional team work with school staff and students to make sure the content is relevant and useful.
In most Schools, we have a dedicated module, with a wealth of resources on Canvas for students to access throughout their study.
A programme of Generic English and Academic Skills also runs during Semester 1 and Semester 2, with courses on Academic Writing, Seminar and Presentation Skills, Accuracy in Academic English and Dissertation Workshops.
Any international student may sign up to these if they wish to develop their English further in a particular area.
In addition, we are offering a bank of 1:1s to provide English Language support to all international Undergraduate, Postgraduate Taught and Postgraduate Research students.
