This course will develop students' proficiency in using the English language for essays and research projects. Students will also engage in structural learning activities in their own academic disciplines in order to develop their discipline-specific English language competency. By focusing student's attention on the study and learning processes involved at university, individuals will be made aware of their competencies and of the learning strategies needed to succeed. Regular feedback on written work and in class discussion will help students form an understanding of their own resources and purposeful, organised approach to learning. Students will learn and practice the different writing, class discussions and oral presentation styles common to postgraduate studies in Australian higher education.
