Program

The course is organized by IUSE (Istituto Universitario di Studi Europei).

English for Scientific Academic Purpose

The course will take place over a total of 10 sessions of 3 hours each for a total of 30 contact hours.  The objective of the course is to supply PhD students with a number of linguistic tools that will help them in their own research and in communicating in international academic contexts. The sessions will be delivered through a mix of teacher-led instruction and workshop-methodology.  In particular, importance will be given to learner interaction and active participation.  There will be a final test at the end of the course.

In order to obtain maximum benefit, it is recommended that participants have a high level of general English language competence equivalent to B2, certified by a Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced, Proficiency or an IELTS mark of 6.0 or higher or a TOEFL score of 72 or higher.  The course is compulsory with an 80% attendance rate necessary in order to receive a certificate of attendance.

PhD students will learn about the key features of academic written communication: 1) academic style and language, sentence structure, and nominalisation; 2) expressing stance and perspective and incorporating source information into writing; 3) key subgenres of academic reports (abstracts, introductions, discussions, conclusions).  Further, students will explore the key features of academic oral communication: 5) delivering problem/solution presentations; 6) delivering processes and procedures; 7) designing a poster presentation and slides; 8) oral communication at conferences.
