Postgraduate Academic English support

  • If you are a taught postgraduate, a research student or a visiting researcher and your first language is not English, you need to quickly develop the specific academic language knowledge and communication skills needed to perform as effectively as possible in your studies and research.

    Postgraduate Academic English Courses

  • This course is running in semester 1 and 2.

    This non-credit bearing module is available to all postgraduate students in the Business School. This module focuses on developing the academic writing and reading skills required when undertaking postgraduate level study in a business context. It focuses on skills relevant to a range of texts, particularly on research articles, business research reports, case studies, essays and critical reviews.

    It is particularly suitable for postgraduate students of business who have had little or no previous Academic English training or study experience.

    There are three parts to the assessment on this module:

    1. A short text on what you perceive to be your academic writing needs.
    2. Submission of a piece of your work for another module in order to receive feedback on your use of English.
    3. A short reflective action plan for the development of your Academic English.

    This course is running in semester 1 and 2.

    This non-credit bearing module is available to all postgraduate students in the Business School. The module develops the academic writing knowledge and skills required when undertaking postgraduate level research in a business context. It is designed to build on the writing skills developed in INSE4001 and provide continued support through the research writing process to those students who would benefit from it.

    It is particularly suitable for postgraduate students of business with limited experience in UK Higher Education.

    This module offers two opportunities to receive formative feedback on student’s own research writing. The two required submissions are outlined here:

    1. Assignment 1: a draft section of research writing for formative feedback
    2. Assignment 2: a draft section of research writing for formative feedback
