English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

R3 307

We know that academic language is no one’s mother tongue. Our English for Academic Purposes short course modules focus on expanding your academic English vocabulary and teaching you the skills to understand content and express yourself with confidence in the academic world.

If you would like to improve your vocabulary and public speaking skills, if you find reading with comprehension challenging, or if it’s hard for you to write essays and assignments in an academic way, these modules will be really useful. We offer them as five-week online short courses, four hours per week.

If you are interested in completing the semester course, please contact SU International, the University’s international office.
