About this Unit
This unit is designed to introduce International students to academic culture as a culture of critical debate and equip them with the academic literacy skills necessary to perform successfully in this culture. In particular, the unit aims to help International students access the conventions of academic English by focussing on attitudes to knowledge, and the ways in which ideas are structured and presented in academic texts and speech. The unit assists students to comprehend academic texts, identify key ideas and concepts, and identify and use the rhetorical moves used in academic texts. It also aims to help students compare and contrast ideas across texts, improve grammatical skills that relate to academic writing, summarise and synthesise information, and understand why, when and how to reference information. In addition, there is a focus on listening and pronunciation skills for International students.
