# English for Academic Purposes

If English is not your first language, the English Academic Practice (EAP) team is here to help.

The EAP team helps students with English for university. We assist with reading, writing, speaking, and listening – everything you need for your studies.

This is different from the Academic Writing Service, which supports students in assignment writing skills. The EAP is for students who face challenges with English proficiency.

We aim to help improve your language skills in these areas:

  • Grammar
  • Vocabulary
  • Pronunciation and intonation
  • Communicating effectively during your studies (e.g., speaking spontaneously with lecturers and peers, delivering academic presentations)
  • Understanding complex texts (e.g., lectures and/or essential reading)

All appointments are free for our students. You can have individual or small group sessions either face-to-face or online.

To access this service, you can talk to:

  • Your Tutor
  • Your Academic Practice Tutor
  • The Library
  • Student Success Coaches
  • Academic Writing Developers
