This easy-to-follow guide is packed with advice for students of English as a second language who are studying, or planning to study, a degree taught in English, either in their home country or abroad. It provides practical advice on academic topics, including listening to lectures, group work and academic writing, and also helpful guidance for coping with language issues, making friends and dealing with culture shock. Packed with insights from real students and engaging activities, it will help them to develop the strategies and skills that they need to thrive in a new academic environment.

This is an essential resource for non-native English speakers who are studying in English at degree level. It is also ideal for students who are preparing for university-level studies and for use on pre-sessional courses for international students.
