Courses for University Teachers and Staff

Courses designed to give university professors, teachers and administrative staff the tools to be better at their jobs in English.

Courses for university teachers cover aspects of English teaching methodology together with ways to help students develop their academic reading, writing and presentation skills. This course will also cover the teachers’ personal development, helping them improve their English and develop confidence presenting their subject in English. This course is perfect for all further education teachers who follow the EMI curriculum (English as a medium of instruction).

Courses for university administrative staff look at ways to deal effectively in English at work. The course covers aspects of dealing with International students from enquiries to giving advice and pastoral care.

Tailored Courses Specifically Designed To Fit The Needs And Requirements Of The University/College

Our English training courses for university teachers are designed around their specific needs (either individuals or small closed groups). LanguageUK will ask participants to complete a needs analysis questionnaire. Some online meetings will follow to discuss the proposed course content and design.
