This course is for anyone aged 18 or over who is preparing to study for a degree or classroom-based VET course where the study is in English. Even if your English is already good enough for further study, this Academic English course can help you understand how to do assignments well and make your further study easier. It may even help you get higher grades in your qualification.
This course covers academic English: the English you will need for further study. It includes speaking, listening, writing and reading, including listening to lectures, speaking in tutorials, giving presentations, reading academic texts, and writing essays and reports. To help you with these skills, there will also be plenty of vocabulary and grammar to help you succeed in your future course.
Continuous assessment is used. Your teachers will give you marks and feedback for the projects you do, as well as for work in class and for homework. You will also have a weekly test covering reading, listening or writing. This assessment helps you to see your progress, and also helps the teachers see which areas to give extra attention to. Feedback from assessment is part of learning and your teacher will help you to improve for the next task.
When you finish your course, we will give you a certificate that shows your grades and the final level you studied at.
The course will be delivered face to face – 20 hours a week.
