Centre for Academic English

Free English courses

If you’re an international student and English is not your first language, the Centre for Academic English is the place to go for free English language support. This includes courses and workshops on academic writing, presentations and academic listening, as well as online resources and one-to-one consultations with a tutor.

The Centre also runs classes focusing on the everyday, social use of the language.

Where to find them: Level 3, Sherfield Building

Language pair scheme

If you’d prefer to learn on a more informal basis, why not join our Language Pair Scheme, run by the Centre for Languages, Culture and Communication, to partner with a native or near-native English speaker who wants to learn your language for practice on an exchange basis?

The Centre is also home to a Language Lab (Lab 2, Room 313, Sherfield) where you can go to get practice. It is open for self-access study from 08.00 to 22.00, seven days a week, whenever it is not in use as a classroom.
