Free LSS-specific English language support workshops are open to all international undergraduate, postgraduate and research students.
Our subject-specific group tutorial workshops are designed to assist students preparing for assignments. These dynamic sessions allow participants to focus on subject-specific elements of vocabulary and academic writing style and review general grammatical features seen in academic writing.
The two sessions are designed to complement each other and applicants are expected to attend both.
Please note: places are limited so sign up only if you intend to turn-up!
