Academic Skills Centre

Supporting you

Members of staff can also join any of the courses we deliver through our Academic Skills programme which aims to help you improve your spoken and written communication. 

Our programme includes units for presentation skills, writing a PhD thesis and academic writing skills, as well as general English language improvement.  You can sign up at the beginning of each semester for the course or courses you would like to join.

It is possible for spouses and partners of staff members to also enrol on our Academic communication skills units. They will need a minimum of IELTS level 6 or equivalent. Please email us if you need more information.

Other skills-training courses for academic staff are available, delivered by the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Office (LTEO).
