The Language Centre can give you practical advice on how to improve your English or your skills in other languages. 

In addition to our language modules, we offer a range of other support options for both international and UK students at different levels of study. Options include:

 

Academic writing support

If you want advice on how to improve your use of academic English in your essay or presentation, the Language Centre offers daily 20-minute sessions that are open to both international and UK students. Boost your grades by getting advice on your draft assignments from one of our academic English tutors. Our tutors can help you restructure your sentences and paragraphs to make them more effective and advise you on your use of academic vocabulary, grammar, style, referencing and more.
