Academic English

Studying abroad is never easy, especially when your course is taught in a foreign language. At OTUK, we understand the challenges associated with achieving academic success overseas in a new language and culture. So whether you are planning to study abroad, already at university in the UK or want to improve your academic English as a post-graduate, we can provide the dedicated one-to-one support you need to develop and progress.

As an OTUK student you will benefit from regular academic assistance and practical training with your own personal British English tutor. In addition, your academic English course will be adapted to address your specific weaknesses, subject area and study goals. Typical course elements include: essay writing, presentation skills, academic reading, subject-specific terminology, classroom debate and more. Our British tutors have firsthand experience of studying at UK universities and can help you achieve the academic success you deserve.
