Millions of university students around the world today use English for some part of their studies, whether they be studying in an English-speaking country, attending an English-medium university elsewhere, or merely trying to access the latest research or textbooks. This module, which is recommended for students with some teaching experience, focuses on developing ways to understand and meet those students’ needs. You will have the chance to see how applied linguists research academic communication, to explore how instructional programmes in English for Academic Purposes can be developed and to develop your own awareness of academic language and skills.
