Students Staff

English support classes

The Talent Development Centre offers free classes to help you develop your English language and academic skills.

Academic English classes

We run a programme of in-sessional academic English classes to support you if English is an additional language. If you wish to enrol you must first take our English language assessment.

Essex English Language Assessment

We require all newly registered students whose first language is not English to sit a short English language assessment.

Help for dependants of international students and staff

The Department of Language and Linguistics offers dependants of international students and staff free English classes through our ECDIS programme.
