Academic English Language Services.

The language you need to write (and speak) successfully at University needs to be learned. Just as you can learn how to structure better assignments and use sources, you need the right kind of language to do these things—language is part of these skills, not just an extra.

The Academic English Language Services offers online modules, workshops, tutorials and free English language classes.
