Support for University of Leicester international students

The ELTU can offer support to international students and staff throughout the University of Leicester:

  • Classes in English for specific disciplines
  • Writing tutorials
  • Language testing

We have extensive experience of dealing with the problems which international students and staff may face when studying or working in a UK university. We have helped international students and colleagues from a wide range of academic fields adapt to and cope with the needs and requirements of life in a UK academic environment.

If you need help and advice with your international students, or have a memebr of staff who needs support, please don't hesitate to contact the ELTU.
