Language and Communication for Sciences (5903LHS)

Language and Communication for Sciences is offered to students from a non-English speaking background (NESB). Students whose first language is English are NOT PERMITTED to undertake this course. The aim of this course is to introduce students to the language, knowledge and communication skills required for study and practice in their discipline. A further aim is to develop and practice English language skills relevant to the academic culture of Australian universities. It therefore involves intensive English language practice and language immersion activities, with elements applied to contextualised, discipline-specific settings. This course constitutes part of the overall English Language Enhancement Strategy at Griffith University. Prerequisites: NIL; Incompatible: 5901LHS/5901LAL, 5902LHS/5902LAL, 5904LHS/5904LAL and 5903LAL.
