Postgraduate Academic English Communication Skills

Postgraduate Academic English

If you are a taught postgraduate, a research student or a visiting researcher and your first language is not English, you need to quickly develop the specific academic language knowledge and communication skills needed to perform as effectively as possible in your studies and research.

Oxford Brookes helps you do this by providing free modules, courses, workshops, tutorials, writing consultations and self study resources.

These run several times over the academic year to best fit your study plans and several timetable options are available to suit your needs.

Please look through the course descriptions to choose those which best fit your academic language needs, study and research workload.

Listen HERE to an introductory talk by Garry Maguire, the postgraduate academic English course leader.

Listen to Nupur Mugekar, a postgraduate student representative, talking about her experience of following PG Academic English courses HERE
