The Academic English Programme (AEP) offers workshops, lectures, courses and modules (both credit and non-credit) for your discipline, focusing on the language and communication skills needed to perform effectively on specific degree programmes at Reading.
Our discipline-specific language and literacy experts closely analyse the texts, assignment types and communicative situations you will encounter on your degree. We then design lessons to develop the specialised language, text organisational (or 'genre') knowledge, reading-to-write skills, and communication strategies you will need to engage successfully with them.
We currently provide input for more than thirty different student groups, from first-year undergraduate to postgraduate research level, across the campus.
If you are a student at Reading, talk to your Department about what is potentially available to you from the discipline-specific AEP.
If you are a staff member and would like a new workshop or course for your students, please see our Academic Language and Literacy Liaison page for details on who to contact.
