The Academic Literacies course aims to expand the
communicative, critical thinking and academic skills of
students required for success at undergraduate level.
In addition to oral presentations, discussions and the
facilitations of seminars, students will develop the
research and writing skills needed to construct sound,
evidence-based arguments. Throughout the course
emphasis is placed on the need to analyze and critically
approach a variety of texts such as academic articles,
media resources and short fiction. Students participate in
formal sessions as well as intensive, personalized
tutorials with instructors and peer groups utilising the
latest information technology. Successful completion of
this course equips students with the skills needed for
sustained academic achievement as proficient and
autonomous English Language communicators.
