Module Description: This module is intended for non-native English speaking high school graduates who wish to join an undergraduate programme where the medium of instruction is English, and who have an English Language Level of TOEFL 500 or IELTS 5. This module also consolidates previous language learning and through a critical thinking framework prepares students for academic life. Taking into account individual needs, this programme aims to homogenise standards of achievement.
Critical thinking is a fundamental component of academic life. It is an essential skill when reading academic texts, and writing essays and reports, or taking part in lectures, seminars and debates.
