Welcome to the English Language Centre
The English Language Centre is a busy department that has a number of distinct functions.
As a support department we specialise in EAP (English for Academic Purposes) and through our Summer Pre-sessional and Year-round Pre-sessional programmes we prepare hundreds of international students for life in their academic departments. Our EAP provision also includes In-sessional courses which provide academic language and literacy support to international sutdents throughout their studies. Through our Academic Writing Unit we offer tailored academic literacy and study skills support to students (home and international) in departments around the University.
Finally, we have considerable expertise in offering teacher development to English Language Teachers; we currently run short courses for higher education institutions around the world, including China, Hong Kong, Japan and Russia.
New Collaborative Session with Durham University Library
The English Language Centre and Durham University Library will be working together this term to offer international students a new session titled 'Finding Academic Sources: beyond the reading list' on Wednesday 1 May, 2-5pm. This is a one-off session focussing on finding appropriate sources for study
Steve Kirk, course director in the English Language Centre, has been invited to speak at the forthcoming EULEAP conference, The Future of EAP, to be held on Saturday 4 May 2013 at Humboldt University, Berlin.
