The English for University Studies course from  St Giles International will help students to be successful in their university studies by preparing them for the challenges of studying in a foreign language and in a foreign culture. 

Students will learn how best to cope with the workload, particularly in terms of reading efficiently and effectively. Students will learn how to write in an academic style and how to give successful presentations. We will also look at how to get involved in seminars and how to get the most out of lectures.
