Welcome to the English Language Centre
The English Language Centre is a busy department which 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 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.
Academic Writing Support
Registered Durham University students can book a one-to-one academic writing consultation with the English Language Centre's Academic Writing Unit.

More Homestay Accommodation needed for International Students
Do you enjoy hosting visitors in your own home? Could you offer a warm welcome to international students attending short courses in Durham this summer or later in the year?
If so, the English Language Centre would love to hear from you.
Academic Language and Communication Programme
If you have students who wish to develop or improve their academic reading, writing, thinking or communication skills, the ALC programme has nearly 50 courses available in term 2 to help them do this.
Courses are free to registered Durham University students and will be available to book from 9am on Monday 16 January via the Training Course Booking System. Full information about the courses is on the English Language Centre website.
