Pre-Sessional EAP Programme

Course Aim: The Pre-Sessional EAP Programmes are designed for international students who want to improve their academic English skills.

Course Description: The Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes Modules are eight or four-week intensive courses that run in July and August and focus on the development of spoken and written academic English. All four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing are taught in relation to their use in an academic environment. Grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary development are integrated into the above skills classes.

In addition to improving language skills, you will study and complete one or more extended essays using source texts and prepare an oral presentation. You will also learn to participate effectively in lectures and seminars.

At least one of the extended written assignments on the course will be related to your specific subject area. Similarly, your oral presentation assignment will also focus on your specific subject area. These assignments will require you to search for, and evaluate sources related to your subject and to incorporate them appropriately into your writing and speaking. In addition, these assignments will encourage you to expand your subject specific vocabulary.

Assessment: Your English language level is assessed by a combination of coursework and examinations.
