Where can I get help with my English?


The Learning Skills team offers:

    •    workshops covering issues such as common grammatical errors, writing clearer sentences, and making your writing more academic

    •    the StudyWISE online resource, including a module focusing on English grammar, punctuation and vocabulary

    •    the Info Desk in the library, where Learning Advisers can discuss your assignment and give you some feedback on your grammar (by reviewing one or two paragraphs), structure, referencing and other issues. Alternatively, you can submit an online query. 


There are credit-bearing units which students can enrol into to develop their academic reading, writing and critical thinking skills, including Academic Communication in Business and Economics, Academic Communication in Science and Academic Communication in the Social Sciences and Humanities. Students from non-English speaking backgrounds can also enrol in EFLA units which are designed to further develop their English language skills.

The Faculty of Business and Economics runs the English Speaking Club which is open to all students. In the weekly groups you can practice your speaking skills and meet new people.
