This 3-week short course has been specifically designed for undergraduates from overseas who wish to further their knowledge of English related to the field of Art and Design and, at the same time, to familiarise themselves with ways of working in British academic culture.

This course aims to enable students to expand their vocabulary and to develop their receptive and productive skills in the English language while engaging with subject-specific theory and practice. All sessions tie in with each other but can and will be adapted to meet students’ needs.

Each week will include a focus on the development of vocabulary and speaking skills as well as understanding subject-specific language in spoken and written texts. Each week will give students time to explore London, with some guidance on where best to see art galleries.

Topics chosen for reading and discussion will be art related. In the final week, students will give short oral presentations relating to either one of the issues discussed on the course, or an experience or aspect of London that was particularly salient for them.
