This course focuses on the key communication skills expected of diploma students in a tertiary academic environment. Students learn in a diverse range of contexts, many of which demand specific linguistic knowledge and high-quality communication skills in order for individuals to function as effective problem-solvers and critical thinkers as well as demonstrate understanding and actively participate in local, national and international academic communities. The integration of a practical focus on these skills into the academic curriculum reflects the expectations of undergraduates held by university academics and enables students to become more confident and competent communicators. This course emphasises proficiency in all of the macro-skill areas (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and enables students to identify and to remedy any English language deficits.
