English language support

If you’re a student or researcher and English isn’t your first language, there are a range of support services available to help you improve your written and spoken English.  

English language courses 

Our Languages team runs a programme of free academic English seminars and social English workshops that are free to on-campus and online students and researchers. 

If English is not your first language, these weekly online and in-person workshops help to develop advanced writing and language skills for academic study and research. These seminars are open to on-campus and online students.

Online students who have previously attended the academic English seminars can join these weekly sessions. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, share ideas and gain feedback on your writing or presenting from an English language tutor. 

Final year international students can access support on writing their dissertation, including tips on how to structure and reference their work.

In these workshops, you will practice the language and conventions of communicating in a professional environment, including advice on writing CVs and job applications.

In these workshops, we look at the pronunciation and delivery of spoken English, helping you to develop your speaking and listening skills. 

These weekly sessions are open to on-campus and online students. These sessions consider cultural topics within British society, where you can learn about colloquial expressions and functional English for everyday situations.
