Academic English 1-1 Support for International Students

1-1 English is available to all undergraduate and postgraduate international students whose first language is not English. It is a bookable service and provides individual and confidential support with Academic English.The aim of these tutorials is to teach and advise you so that you can improve your spoken or written English.

What happens during a 1-1 English tutorial?

During your 30 minute consultation you will be able to ask questions about any aspect of your English. This could be a piece of your writing such as a few pages from an essay, report or thesis. The tutor will comment on the main issues, e.g. grammar, vocabulary, academic style, organisation, and will discuss with you how you could improve them. Please note that we will be teaching and advising you, not proofreading your work. Please come prepared with examples and questions.
