Academic Language Skills Advising (ALSA)

If English isn’t your first language, you may have questions about academic language skills that native English speakers already feel confident with. Alternatively, you may be a native speaker who just feels they would like to have some extra time with someone who can answer questions related to academic language skills. If this sounds like you – we can help.

Who can attend?

Academic Language Skills Advising sessions give you an opportunity to discuss any issues related to language learning or academic development on a one-to-one basis. Alternatively, if you have friends with similar problems, we can prepare a 45-minute group session for your particular needs.

All sessions are free and take place in the ACIS Tutorial Room (65/2019) Avenue Campus. We can offer online sessions as well.

You can book sessions with us here.

Who are we?

This service is run by Senior Teaching Fellows Victoria Rowe and Peter Whittam. You can contact us by email on
