English for Academic Purposes

University of Canberra

Our Academic English courses help students develop their English skills for further study in Australia. Academic English can be very different to the English used every day. Even if a person speaks English well in conversation, it might be difficult to understand the new words and structures used in university or another academic setting. Our curriculum will ensure students are completely prepared for university study in Australia. In these courses, students will develop skills in academic proficiency and literacy in English. They will find it easier to understand and participate in their chosen college or university course. Successful completion of the Academic English course means a student will be able to use English in a variety of academic contexts and take responsibility for their progress with little support from teachers.
