Academic Language and Communication Programme

(28 September 2017)

Do you have students who could benefit from additional academic language support? The English Language Centre's Academic Language and Communication courses are designed to help them develop the academic language and literacy skills they need to succeed in your department. Information packs have been sent to Departments and Colleges and you can view the full list of courses running this term on our webpages. If you have any questions about our ALC programme you can email us at or contact us on Twitter (@DU_insessional).

All Term 1 courses will be available for sign up from Monday 2 October and classes begin on Monday 9 October. The ALC programme has more than 40 extra-curricular courses such as academic writing, academic skills, academic language use and UK academic culture. Courses are open to students from all levels, nationalities and disciplines and staff are also welcome to attend.
