On passing the module, we expect your IELTS scores to be in the range of 6.5 to 7.0. Aimed at those studying (or planning to study) internationally or in the UK, this online module will improve your performance in English-taught university study. It will develop your academic reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, enabling you to study successfully.
At the end of the English for Academic Purposes Online course offered at The Open University, you’ll have developed your understanding and practice of:
– using language for a range of academic purposes, including description; comparison; explanation; evaluation; persuasion; problem-solving; cause and effect; and argument
– selecting information and ideas from different sources and using this to support an academic argument
– reflecting on and critiquing academic texts
– communicating more effectively in a global and academic environment
– developing an understanding of the conventions of good academic practice
You’ll have a tutor to help you with the study materials and to mark and comment on your work. You’ll be able to ask your tutor for advice and guidance and, if you’re new to The Open University, help you with study methods.
An important element of the module is the feedback you receive from your tutor on the work you do as part of the module. Feedback provides the basis for your development as a student, and you will be able to contact your tutor by email or phone throughout the module.
