Our courses for graduate students in academic English include introduction to graduate writing, thesis/dissertation writing, writing for scholarly publication, along with courses in speaking/listening. We also offer a range of academic English undergraduate courses in academic writing and reading/vocabulary. The Program also provides international graduate students who plan to become teaching assistants with an assessment program and support tutorials.
