English Language Summer School 2013
This four week intensive English language and cultural studies programme offers 21 hours a week guided learning opportunities at intermediate, upper intermediate and advanced levels of English – subject to sufficient student numbers and an initial English language test on arrival.
The Summer School is for students of any first language other than English who are looking for a short but intensive experience of studying in Wales. Participants will be introduced to British Culture and public society through a tailored course of academic tuition, educational trips to the nearby cities of Liverpool and Chester, and excursions to the most picturesque and historic sites of northern Wales and western England. We have pre-planned programmes on offer, but participants are also free to use their own initiative to engage in city life by visiting museums, galleries, shops, pubs... until they wish to return to Wrexham by a train of their choice.
Tuition and credits
On successful completion students will be awarded a Glyndŵr University Certificate of Continuing Education and 20 Higher Education credits (=10 ECTS) which can be used towards a Higher Education degree as appropriate
Social events and weekend trips are included in the price and will take place according to the schedule. We plan to continue our successful country evenings where participants can exercise their newly gained language skills and introduce their country and its culture to their international friends on the course. Our film evenings also offer popular entertainment with a cultural touch; and for those wishing to enjoy nightlife either in Wrexham or nearby Chester we can make recommendations!
Students are provided with on-campus accommodation or are allocated to University housing a short distance from the University. Alternatively, help will be provided with other accommodation arrangements as appropriate. All accommodation is single en-suite (private toilet and shower). Usually up to 6 students share a fully equipped kitchen (good for practising your English and making new friends). The Student Village site is close to the learning resources (library, IT), supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and cafes, and is patrolled 24 hours by security officers.
Scheduled transfers from/to Manchester airport are included in the programme fees as appropriate. International Officers and the The Language Centre will support you during your stay in Wrexham. 24-hour emergency numbers will ensure that you will always have somebody to call for help or advice if needed. You will also be advised on free time activities as well as on individual plans and visits.
