English for Academic Study

English for Academic Study

by Coventry University


University can be tough. But when you're an international student studying at a university where the primary language is English, it's even harder to keep up with lectures, ask questions, and take exams if you haven't worked on your language skills.

Gareth Jones, Mary Forbes, and Graeme Nelson are all faculty members at Coventry University. The university's Pre-Sessional English Online Award program helps international students build the language skills they need to succeed at higher education in English.

This course, offered through FutureLearn, will help improve your vocabulary and pronunciation, as well as foundational skills for developing further.
