EAP for Humanities and Social Sciences

English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

This is a free course for Humanities and Social Sciences students on the Penryn campus whose first language is not English. It aims to develop your written English skills, and focuses on the subject specific vocabulary, style and structure that you need for your written work. For some students, a bibliographic exercise is due as early as Week 2, so these classes will make sure you understand this assignement and know how to complete it. As part of the course students may also book tutorials for advice on individual pieces of work.
