Do you have support or resources to help students with English-language skills?
You asked, we answered. You asked "Do you have support or resources to help students with English-language skills?" and we gathered short videos from institutions, students and our IDP counsellors giving their answers and opinions.
University of Limerick
We have a language center on campus, so it's taught by our faculty of English. We have a pre-sessional English program where students can study English before they start their bachelor's and master's degree. They can enter that with IELTS scores slightly lower than our normal entry requirements, and they study intensive English before they start. We also have a language training center that will assist students during their program and free of charge English classes for students who need extra support.
University of Winnipeg
We certainly do. The University of Winnipeg offers an English language program that has both short term and long term programs, the short term programs will allow students to practice their language skills just a little bit if they'd like to feel more comfortable. While the long term program will let students use it as a means of meeting the academic pathway for undergraduate studies. Our international student department also offers peer mentoring so that students can make friends at the same time as practicing their language skills.
Western New England University
Services offered to students who joined Western University's campus, one of them is the writing center, which is where I am right now, where you'll be able to get advice on how to write papers. You can help improve your English language ability. All students are also assigned academic progress and advisors. And so you can always go to them if you have any questions about your courses. And they're here to support you throughout your entire time at Western University.
