Current Students

'I have been taking In-sessional courses since I came to Durham. The courses give me constant assistance with my studies. Without the In-sessional courses and the teacher's efforts, I would struggle with general academic skills. The materials are easy to understand and suitable for everyone from different departments.'

Studying with Us

Our aim is to offer a number of programmes of academic study, from Foundation courses for pre-undergraduates to MA degrees in TESOL and Applied Linguistics. We also specialise in developing students’ academic skills at all levels of study. We offer term-time and summer pre-sessional programmes in English for Academic Purposes, as well as year-round provision in areas such as Academic Writing, Digital Skills, Being Productive (e.g. time management), and Projects & Dissertations.
We also organise one-to-one consultation services in academic writing, and maths & statistics. All of these sections can be explored below in more detail.
