About Us

Newcastle UniversityThe In-Sessional English team is here to help you achieve your full potential in your academic subject. The purpose of the In-Sessional support is to help you use the English language to effectively communicate knowledge in your academic studies.

You will be able to attend up to eight hours of support classes. All of this support is free and aims to help you achieve your full academic potential. Make sure you make the most of it.

The support ranges between lecture-style and workshop-format, covering reading, writing, listening and speaking. We also offer one-to-one writing tutorials, where you can meet a teacher for 25 minutes to discuss an assignment you are working on.

To maximise the amount of interaction in our lessons in the context of COVID-19 and physicaly distancing, most of our lessons will take place in an online-synchronous (live) format. This will allow more group-work to take place. It will also allow the teacher to monitor your progress more closely so that they can provide you with suggestions about how you can improve.

In addition to the online-synchronous lessons, there will also be some Present in Person teaching to consolidate your learning and to provide the opportunity for you to ask your teacher questions.

Further details are available in the course information section.

The in-sessional teaching was authentic and friendly. It encouraged integration and interaction among students from different cultural backgrounds from Chile to China. The instructor was very knowledgeable and well-prepared. I hope such classes are offered again since I learnt a lot from them.
