ELTC Academic Sessions - sessions will start week beginning 25 November to wk beg. 16th Dec.

We are offering a series of academic English language sessions which are repeated over a 4 week period, on various topics, for students studying their academic subject in their Faculty/Department at the University of Sheffield. Sessions will run for 4 weeks in Semester 1 and for another 4-weeks in Semester 2.  You can choose to do as many of the topics as you like, but please do attend your chosen sessions as space is limited.

Who are the Academic Sessions for?

These sessions are only available to students who are already studying at The University of Sheffield (including at the Department for Lifelong Learning). Students on courses at the ELTC or University of Sheffield International College CANNOT attend these sessions.

These sessions are provided for students who would like extra help with their English. If your level of English is good (e.g. IELTS 7.5 + or equivalent), the sessions will probably not be suitable for you.

How are the Academic Sessions organised?

The content is fixed and sessions take place on Wednesday and Friday afternoons, 13:45-15:15 and 15:30 – 17:00, with each session lasting 90 minutes. Sessions are repeated 4 times over a 4 week period. The sessions are held on the dates and times mentioned in the tables below.
