Insessional Academic English Support

While you are studying your degree with us, you can continue to develop your English Language skills in various ways:

  • You can register for a course, which will involve studying a module in a class
  • You can attend a one-to-one consultation


Our courses are classroom-based modules lasting from three to nine weeks. They take place at lunchtime, in the afternoon or at the end of the normal teaching day (5pm), to allow as many students as possible to fit language support around their academic programme.

Classes are usually one or one and a half hours long, and are held on different sites around the University.

Consultations will continue until 21 December 2016 and will start again early January. Meanwhile registrations for Term 2 classes will begin on 9 January 2017. In preparation for registering, please look at the guidance notes for course dates and times, and details of how to register.


The course content for insessional courses is available to everyone, so if you simply wish to have the course information you can do so through Moodle. Self-enrolment for insessional modules on Moodle guidance notes are available to assist you with access.

There is no fee for any of these options, and you can find out more below:
