We offer workshops throughout to help you develop your English language and academic skills.

They will help you gain confidence in communicating your ideas. You will learn to hone your writing and speaking clearly and effectively.

In EIS workshops, you will learn with experienced, qualified teachers. You will also have the opportunity to meet other students and develop your academic communication skills.

While you don't have to attend all workshops, you can choose those that are most relevant to your needs.

All EIS workshops are free.

On some courses, you will have the option of enrolling on discipline-specific language modules.

These tailored English support modules are offered in:

  • School of Business
  • Education and Society
  • Dundee Law School
  • Psychology

These are credit-bearing modules that will appear on your degree transcript.

Language Clinic

English Language Clinic offers online or drop-in appointments to support international students who have questions about anything to do with Academic English including the structure of coursework, exam preparation, presentations, or just need some general language advice.
