From the academic year 2021-2022 we will no longer offer Spoken English for Technologists or English for Academic Purposes to students. Instead you can sign up for our new courses. Please read the following information carefully to see which course you can register for instead.

If you have taken our Placement Test before, and were recommended SET 1 or EAP2, you can sign up for Writing in English for the University (TPM303A) or Spoken English for Group Work (TPM301A). If you have taken our Placement Test before, and were recommended SET 2 or EAP3, you can sign up for Advanced writing in English for the University (TPM304A) or Advanced Spoken English for Group Work (TPM301B).
