Temario

Course Content You will study the following modules:
  • English for Academic Purposes (EAP)
The aim of this module is to provide you with the EAP skills that will prepare you for a postgraduate course at a UK university. Through 10 contact hours per week and an additional two hours tutorial time, you will develop your academic reading, writing and listening skills as well as presentation skills. You will be assessed by authentic, continuous assessment tasks, including a dissertation as well as EAP final exams.
  • Research Methods

Seven hours of your total contact time per week will be dedicated to Research Methods. These classes will help you to plan a research project, conduct research and write up a dissertation. You will develop strategies for undertaking research projects within your chosen field and you will have the opportunity to explore different approaches to research methods and analysis.

The dissertation will be an independent piece of research, though you will have language support as well as a tutor who will offer clear guidance on planning, content and structure. Your focus will be on a topic of your choice which relates to your future postgraduate course.Management Studies
