Course Content

The 91快活林’s Pre-sessional English and Academic Study Skills (PEASS) courses are designed to help international students:

  • Meet the English language requirements for their undergraduate or postgraduate degree course
  • Use academic English effectively in speech and writing
  • Develop essential academic English skills, including presentation and seminar techniques, essay writing skills and using sources
  • Become familiar with the academic culture of a UK University

Support and advice will also be provided in areas such as applying for your visa, visa extensions, and accommodation options to enable students to progress onto their undergraduate or postgraduate degree programme, following successful completion of the PEASS course.

 

What You Can Expect from Your Course

  • Daily sessions in small classes.
  • Regular group discussion activities during class.
  • Weekly materials in a range of formats, including academic reading texts, mini-lectures, worksheets, presentation slides, and videos.
  • A weekly one-to-one tutorial with your tutor where you will receive personalised support and guidance.
  • Regular feedback on your progress, including advice on essay drafts, independent study tasks, presentation and seminar practice.
  • Access to the dedicated course website and chat forums where you can share ideas and connect with other students in the PEASS community.

 

How You Are Assessed

On both online and on-campus PEASS courses, you will be evaluated according to the following 4 components: 

  1. A fully researched essay on an assigned academic topic, including a short preliminary essay and a longer, final essay.
  2. An individual presentation.
  3. A group seminar discussion on an assigned topic.
