Can I take these modules?

  • Are you a first or second year undergraduate?
  • Do you have unrestricted module choices?
  • Is English your second or other language?
  • Do you want to improve and gain credit for your skills in English?

If the answer is 'YES' to all the questions above, you may be interested in the ELTC's credit-bearing modules.

What are they?

The modules are in the area of English for Academic Purposes and are part of the University's 'Language for ALL'

•ELT5401/ELT5402 - English for Academic Purposes (Reading and Writing)
•ELT5411/ELT5412 - English for Academic Purposes (Speaking and Listening)

What are their aims?

They focus on language in academic and professional situations.

The modules should not only enhance your current studies, but will also prove your capability in transferable professional skills.

How many credits are they for?

10 credits for each module. You must take these for credit only.
