English language support
Those studying in English as a second language are offered an array of support. Unlike many universities which offer in-sessional general academic English classes, we offer subject specific English classes that focus on the language and skills that students need for their particular course and run parallel to their assignments: English for performance courses, English for Design, English for Art, Illustration and Drawing, English for Film and animation, and English for Advertising. This is a unique service and enables our international students to excel in their chosen field.
