Academic English Language Support and Development for Postgraduate Students

Support for your studies is available throughout the year from our team of experienced English for Academic Purposes tutors. During the semester we offer workshops, guest lectures, bookable tutorials and online formative feedback to help you succeed in your taught Masters modules or PhD research writing. In the summer we run a weekly Postgraduate Language Clinic, where you can drop in to discuss drafts of your work. Areas we can help you with include writing from sources, oral presentation skills, grammar/punctuation and academic style.
