English and Study Skills Programme
The ESSP runs each year from June to September, and its curriculum is designed to cover the skills required for success in a postgraduate degree program and for professional success. The core components are Academic Writing Skills, Speaking & Presentation Skills and Thematic Integrated Skills. The program also includes academic lectures by WMU professors, and IT and library workshops.
The classes are small to facilitate group activities and allow a very high level of individual feedback to students from their teachers. The competences that are developed include effective problem solving, solid research methods, critical reading and analysis, all skills that are needed in postgraduate study.
