  • Academic English

    The Academic English team at the Centre for Academic Development help international undergraduates, postgraduates, researchers and staff, particularly those for whom English is an additional language, to develop the Academic English communication skills needed to perform as effectively as possible while at Oxford Brookes.

    We provide credit and non-credit bearing modules, tutorials, workshops, and self-study resources.
