Academic English course

Is it for me?

Do you need help with your English academic papers and presentations? Then this is the right course for you. Academic English is designed for students at various stages of their academic career including undergraduate, master’s and PhD students. 

What will I learn?

This course is very open to your needs and questions, so every student can learn from the others. During the 4 group lessons we will cover the basics academic skills such as writing standards for essays, critically analysing academic texts, creating theoretical argumentation, structuring academic papers and other needs expressed by students. During the 4 individual tutorials you will be helped to apply the techniques learned during the group classes as well as with any other academic concerns or areas for improvement.

The course schedule will alternate every week between 2-hour group lessons and 1-hour individual tutorials. Each group consists of 3-4 people and the individual tutorials will be planned according to the students’ scheduling.

The schedule of this course is aligned with the Utrecht University academic calendar so we can focus on both current and future writing projects in an effort to provide the opportunity for both long term and short-term academic success.

People are saying

Great teacher

Laurel is a great teacher. I used to discuss the main ideas of my papers with her and we used to have really interesting talks about gender studies and social science in general. This kind of talks improved my arguments and reinforced my ideas in the texts. The course was very useful.
