Welcome to the English Language Department, part of the Durham Centre for Academic Development (DCAD)

DCAD is a busy department which has a number of distinct functions.

As an academic department we offer MA programmes in TESOL and Applied Language Studies for TESOL and an undergraduate module , English and its Social Context, for Erasmus and exchange students.

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 Academic Language and Communication courses which provide academic language and literacy support to international students 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 programmes to English Language Teachers.


One-to-One Consultation Service

Students who are struggling with their academic writing or who would benefit from additional academic writing support can book a one-to-one academic writing consultation with the English Language Centre's Academic Writing Unit.
