Support services for international students

English language support

We can assess your level of academic English through the Diagnostic English Language Needs Assessment (DELNA). DELNA is used to direct you to appropriate sources of help; it is not used to exclude you from a programme and the results do not appear on your academic record.

Diagnostic English Language Needs Assessment (DELNA)

The University’s English Language Academy provides courses that will give you practical skills in academic writing, speaking and pronunciation, academic reading and listening.

English Language Academy

You can join programmes and conversation groups through Student Learning Services.

You can improve your English in your own time through English Language Enrichment.
