English Language

Why study this module?

This module is designed to advance your English language skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening up to level B2 of Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). There is a strong focus on vocabulary development, language accuracy and acquiring effective learning strategies.

Our English Language module runs during session two and three of our summer school. This module can only be taken in combination with another academic module from either another session or the same session. 

All of our summer school modules are worth 15 UK credit points / 3 US credit points / 7.5 ECTS. Upon successful completion we will provide you with a transcript of records.

Please note that our summer school modules are currently subject to validation. In the unlikely event that a module isn’t validated by its start date, we will get in touch to discuss the options available to you.
