Academic English is no-one’s first language!


Did you know that we offer support for students who would like to improve their written and spoken academic English?

The overall aim is to develop the language skills required for postgraduate study in the UK. It’s suitable for anyone, whether you are a taught or research student, a first or second language speaker, and whether you want a skills refresher or a simple confidence boost. Our team of academic English tutors are here to help you improve your verbal and written communication skills.

Check out the range of online and in-person support options provided free, including interactive small group workshops, 1-2-1 tutorial appointments, and a drop-in service in Kings Norton Library and the School of Management Library. Visit the Academic English support page to find out more, browse our range of upcoming workshops, or email

There is also a collection of interactive learning resources available on our Study Skills Hub if you would prefer some self-paced online learning.
