English Language Development Program
Each year the Faculty of Science run a free academic skills and language development program to equip our graduate students with valuable skills that enable them to get the most out of their studies. The program is designed to fit within your course of study, at no additional cost.
Topics include: writing a literature review, structuring a scientific essay, writing clarity and focus, time management and communication skills.
To ensure that the program is tailored specifically to your needs, you will be invited to sit the Diagnostic English Language Assessment (DELA). This assessment determines your level of academic English and the skills areas in which you would benefit from receiving extra support. Importantly, DELA is not an exam, and you can't fail. DELA is a post-entry assessment which means that it does not affect your admission to the University, and results do not appear on your university transcript. DELA is offered throughout orientation week and is held in one of the University’s teaching venues. Times will be made available on the DELA webpage.
