Welcome English Course

A series of workshops for new students and researchers during the first two weeks of the academic year: 16 - 27 September 2019. The workshops give an introduction to using English in different situations that may be encountered during the first few weeks in the UK, and have a local focus on living and travelling around Falmouth and Penryn. The classes are a great place to meet others from around the world and to ask any questions about university and life in Cornwall. Details of times, rooms and course registration will be published in September.

Contact the EAP team to find out more about the English language support, or to make a request for a course or workshop.


1-to-1 Tutorials are available throughout the year and are an opportunity to receive language feedback on written work, presentations or any aspect of language development. Please note that this is not a proofreading service, but tutors can advise on areas of language that require development.
