Subject Specific Modules

English for Academic Purposes*

This module is designed for students who are not proficient English speakers and who do not have a Secure English Language Test (SELT) that is acceptable for entry under- and/or postgraduate programmes.

The aim of the EAP module is to allow students to develop their English language and academic skills to the level required to successfully study their chosen degree course in English. The EAP module, therefore, introduces students to the linguistic demands of undergraduate study, including independent reading and study, extended writing and accessing academic texts.

Research Methods

The overarching aim of the Research Methods module is to allow students to develop their academic study skills to the level required to successfully embark on a postgraduate course at university. This will be done through the exploration of research methods and a research project.
