Programme-specific support

The University Language Centre is able to mount programme-specific courses and workshops for particular groups of international - and, in some cases, home - postgraduate students whether they are pursuing taught or research-based programmes.

These courses are discipline-specific and cover areas of language and skills which are of relevance to students following a certain programme of study.  The length and number of workshops vary according to School requirements.

There is a charge for this type of provision. Please contact the Academic Support Programmes Officer using the details below:
