It offers an opportunity for students to find out what skills and knowledge are needed in order to apply for and succeed in Higher Education in the UK and provides information about pathways and opportunities. The course provides modules and workshops in English language and academic writing, research skills, academic tutoring and introduction to academic discussions.

A certificate of attendance is available for all who attend the offered workshops. Please note that this is not an accredited programme and does not give students an automatic access to other UEL courses.
