Academic English Program

Academic English is a specific style of English used at university. You’ll hear it in lectures and tutorials, and you’ll also be expected to use it when you write your assessments and give oral presentations.

The Academic English Program has been designed to help you take your language skills to the next level. Even if you’re a confident English speaker, having a good grasp of academic English will help you succeed in your course.

Once you’ve started your UTS degree, undergraduate or postgraduate coursework, you can add Academic English: Communication Fundamentals (8cps or 6cps) as an elective subject.
