Whether you speak English as a first or second language, there are a number of skills and techniques you need in order to get a good start on your Undergraduate or Postgraduate course at an English-speaking university. The most important of these will be covered on this course in order to give you confidence when you enter the classroom and complete your first assignments. Topics covered include:


  • Assessment types
  • Academic integrity and plagiarism
  • Referencing
  • Quoting, paraphrasing and summarising
  • Giving presentations
  • Listening to lectures and note-taking
  • Understanding academic articles and note-taking
  • Seminars and conversations across cultures


The course will be interactive, allowing you to practise your speaking and listening skills with other students as well as giving you access to reading and listening resources to practise these skills also. We encourage you to work with each other and you may also find friends who are about to begin the same journey as you, someone you may be able to meet when you get to university so you are not alone in starting your new adventure.
