English for BSc and MSc Students

We offer a range of English skills courses to help you succeed at the university. To determine the proper level, you need to take our placement test first, except for Grammar for the University (TPM 018A) and Thesis writing for the MSc (wm1139TU). 

Once you have received a course recommendation, you can register via Brightspace. All these courses (except Advanced English) are one quarter (7 weeks) and offer 2 ECTS—and all our courses are free to students.

All Master’s students can take Thesis Writing. No placement test is required, but you must be actively writing your thesis!

Enrollment

All courses begin in the first week of each semester. Enrollment for all courses will open in August.

BSc and MSc students who have taken the Placement Test and want to join a group can do so approximately one month before the start of each semester. An announcement will be posted on the website and in Brightspace as soon as the new groups are open.

Students who have successfully completed other English courses in this department in the past 12 months do not need to take the test. Contact your previous instructor for advice.

Students who took our Placement Test before

From the academic year 2021-2022 we will no longer offer Spoken English for Technologists or English for Academic Purposes to students. 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).
