Language Center


The Language Center offers a number of English courses from general proficiency to specialized writing or speaking courses. How do you choose the best English course for you? What exactly is the difference between the courses? More information about this can be found on this page.

We offer the following courses and training specifically for students. However, these courses are also accessible to employees and external participants. There are different categories.

Summer Course

If you are entering university or currently in or preparing for English-taught education, you may want to quickly take your academic English skills to the next level. This two-week intensive course gives you the fast-paced, intensive boost you need to write and speak in English in an academic context.

Writing courses

In these courses you will work on writing a specific text that is important for your study program. Each detailed course description contains a paragraph about for whom the course is most suitable.

Oral and presentation skills

These courses focus on speaking skills in general or specifically on presentation skills.

General language skills

For those who want to improve their general language skills, there are three courses. English for Academic Communication focuses on the productive skills of writing and speaking and is a basic course at B2+ level. The two Improving Your English courses go to C1 and C2 level respectively and cover not only speaking and writing but also reading and listening skills.

Specialized courses

These courses have a specific purpose as the course title reflects.

Training for TiU staff

In addition to these courses for students, there are a number of courses specifically for staff members. 

Employees can also come to us for the English Assessment or for customized training options that are tailored to your service, department or organization. Please contact the Language Center for advice on what is the best solution for you.

Training for external professionals

The courses above are either designed specifically for non-TiU professionals or designed for TiU staff but open to external professionals as well. Organizations can also contact the Language Center for information about customized training options.
