One of the key characteristics of studying at university is developing your abilities to understand and use academic language. This can take time, and can be quite difficult sometimes. It doesn't need to be impossible though!
Watch our introductory video to find out more, and then follow the links beneath to useful fact sheets and activities to help you develop and perfect your use of academic language.
Remember we offer various seminars during the year to help you further develop your academic language; you can also book a one-to-one with an LET lecturer if you want to discuss any areas of academic language or academic style.
