Language and skills support

Academic English language support

The Language Centre offers academic English language support sessions for international students and home students who do not have English as their first language. Sessions are open to Edge Hill students from any of the University’s courses.

The support sessions are not open to home students whose first language is English. These students, however, can receive help with their academic skills by attending the UniSkills workshops provided by Library and Learning Services.

A wide range of self-guided resources are also available and can be accessed at Language Centre Support. Edge Hill students also have access to Academic Marker, a site with collection of resources and short courses for students who would like to improve their academic English.
