Celebrations for ELCOS students
Students from across the globe came together at Bangor University recently to celebrate their achievement of passing pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes courses.
Twenty five students in all completed the 2013-14 full-time pre-sessional courses of English for academic purposes which developed the students’ level of English language use and study skills for entry to Bangor University in the coming academic year. The courses were run by the English Language Centre for Overseas Students (ELCOS) which is part of the University’s International Education Centre (IEC).
The students came from China and the Middle Eastern countries of Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Iraq and Kurdistan and the majority of those who were awarded with a certificate were postgraduate. All will be back in Bangor in October for their academic programmes.
Professor Carol Tully, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Student Experience presented the certificates and said: “The students have worked very hard on these intensive academic courses and we’re very proud of their achievements. We look forward to welcoming them back to Bangor in September.”
