Academic Language Support Service

Academic Writing Support

Loughborough University in London

Many Loughborough University London students start their journey here at Loughborough on a pre-sessional or study skills course. We also have an English for Academic Purposes Tutor based at the London Campus to support students during their studies in London.  Much of the support is embedded within the curriculum focussing on academic language and academic conventions directly relevant to the module assessment.
