Our in-sessional English for Academic Purposes (EAP) short courses are free modules, available to students who are already registered on a course at the University.
The EAP Academic Writing for Native Speakers of English is suitable for you if your first language is English, but you would benefit from improving your academic writing skills. The interactive classes will help you to succeed in your main course by giving you practice in improving clarity, cohesion, argumentation and critical evaluation in your academic writing. You will also learn strategies for avoiding plagiarism and for proofreading and correcting work. Targeted feedback and advice will be available through tutorial time.
The module requirement is that you attend two hours per week over one semester. As well as the main taught session, the module includes weekly tutorial time, which is offered on a rotational basis. Tutorials are used to give individual feedback and advice and are an important element of learning.
Please note, this course is usually taken in addition to your main course, so it does not count towards this. When you enrol, you can choose between accredited and non-accredited versions of the module. Once you have chosen which version of the module to take, you will not usually be allowed to transfer between the two.
If English is your second language, or you have learned it as a foreign language, EAP In-Sessional English for Academic Purposes will be more appropriate for you.
