SLAL has collaborated with the Shanghai Maritime University (since 2015), Yantai University (since 2019), Westminster International Thailand (since 2020) and Guangdong University of Foreign Studies (since 2021) to deliver a range of our Pre-Sessional English (PSE) courses to help students improve their English language and study skills in order to make a successful transition to UK university. The growing network of University of Portsmouth PSE centres also enables English for Academic Purposes practitioners to share best practice and develop professionally in collaboration with their peers across the globe.
We also offer educational holiday programmes to help students improve their English language skills as they experience a taste of life in Portsmouth.
In December 2021, SLAL hosted a group of teachers from Jizzakh State Pedagogical University, Uzbekistan for a bespoke 2-week CPD course focusing primarily on Communicative Language Teaching and how pedagogy could be implemented to meet the current and future needs of learners in that context. There was also an opportunity for the participants to experience a taste of higher education in the UK and explore the thriving coastal city of Portsmouth. This course was part of the University’s global mission and reflects the record four memorandums of understanding that have been signed with educational institutions in Uzbekistan.
We’re always happy to talk about ways of working with partners outside the university. If you want to discuss a project, partnership or training course with us, please contact us on email@example.com.
