English Language Support Service

Current international students

Using academic language appropriately and correctly can make a tremendous difference to the quality of your work, but it doesn’t always come naturally.

The English Language Support Service offers a range of support in academic and general English as well as study skills specifically aimed at and designed for international students.  We are here to help you develop the English language and study skills that you will need to succeed on your academic programme and in your future career.

About in-sessional support

Who are the classes for?

Are you a Loughborough University international student whose first language isn’t English? Do you find it difficult to study in a foreign language and in a different academic culture? Are you a postgraduate student with lots of experience, or an undergraduate student just starting out in Higher Education?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, we may be able to help! 

The English Language Support Service runs a range of workshops and courses during semester one and two to help you with your academic English, study skills and adjustment to UK academic culture and expectations.
