At the University of Bedfordshire, we want you to get the most out of your time with us. That's why the University has created a core programme of timetabled communication skills classes, which all EU and international students are required to attend.
We know how important it is, both during your time at University and in your career afterwards, to continually develop and enhance your intercultural communication skills.
Many employers and visa sponsors will look for evidence (in addition to your academic achievements) of excellent English language proficiency and career skills.
Communication Skills classes help me to improve my reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. They teach me how to write academic essays and how to communicate in daily life. Playing language games or doing competitions with my classmates makes language study interesting as we learn more actively. The teaching is good and thanks to all the teachers.
