Studying at university can be challenging. We can help you gain confidence in communicating effectively in your academic studies.
We also offer you opportunities to improve your social language skills, better understand British culture, and take the opportunity to meet other students from all over the world.
About our Courses & Workshops
All requests for places must be submitted through Blackboard. Read the Course Registration Guide to see how this works (click the front page on the right).
We also recommend that you read the ‘Important Information‘ section at the bottom of this page before you start attending classes.
Term 2 In-sessional Courses (January – March/April 2019)
– your full name
– your Student ID
– the name of the course
– the date and time of the lesson you are unable to attend.
Conditions for Authorised Absence
– An authorised absence will only be granted if the email is received before the class starts.
– Students can request a maximum of 2 authorised absences per course. Any further notifications of absence are appreciated but will not be authorised.
Unauthorised Absence and Removal from a Course
If you are absent for 2 consecutive lessons without prior notice, we will assume you no longer want to attend and your place will be cancelled and where possible, offered to another student.
Please note there must be a minimum number of student registrations for each class in order for us to run these courses. If there are not enough students registered courses may be cancelled. Students who have registered will be informed if the course is not running.
We aim to notify all students at least 24hrs in advance if a class has to be cancelled, however, in exceptional circumstances this might not be possible.
