The overarching aims of the English skills for scientists course and complementary science lecture are as follows:

  1. To provide an introduction to the study of science in English.
  2. To help students acquire the necessary confidence, language, and academic skills to engage with high school level science in English.
  3. To provide a bridge between the type of teaching/learning at high school and that at university.
  4. To engage students with new ideas and design stimulating activities for students to perform in a mutually supportive environment.
