University can be a big adjustment and it can take time to fully understand what is expected of you. Indeed, writing academically at university may require skills you have not developed at school.
Academic English is no one’s first language
Academic English is something all students, even native English speakers, have to learn and practise, and many students are keen to hone their academic English by taking advantage of the support available.
The Centre for Academic English exists to help international students develop their academic language skills and give them the confidence to participate fully in the academic community. The Centre runs various courses and aims to help you improve both your academic and social communication skills. The centre’s staff will help you understand your work and therefore meet the demands of your study load. Visit their website to find out more, get in touch or book a course.
