A reminder of language support across the University

A reminder of language support across the University | UoS Business School Undergraduate News | Scoop.it

Dear Students,

 

I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you all of the various sources of support across the university specifically the help available to you should you wish to improve your English for academic purposes in addition to course linked support.

 

First of all there are the General English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses. Any international student at the University can sign up for these courses which are offered on Academic Writing, Presentation and Seminar Skills, Critical Thinking, Dissertation Writing and Everyday English.

http://www.southampton.ac.uk/ml/international/language_support/eap.page

 

Students can also sign up for individual tutorial help. These are 20 minute individual sessions for language and academic advising. e.g. they could take along a piece of their writing for guidance on how to improve; they could ask for advice on how to learn vocabulary. NB Advisors will not proof read whole assignments.

http://www.southampton.ac.uk/ml/cls/language_and_academic_advising.page

 

International students also have access to the  English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Toolkit on Blackboard. Every international student has a link to this on their Blackboard homepage. The EAP Toolkit is a set of online self-study resources containing over 100 interactive learning resources or 80 hours of activity based learning. It covers Learning Skills, Academic Writing, Reading and Critical Thinking, Listening and Note-Taking, Communication Skills, Grammar and Vocabulary for Academic Purposes.

Login at www.blackboard.soton.ac.uk

 

It may be second semester already but it's not too late to look into these resources.

Message from Richard Cartwright, NSS Champion for the Business School

Message from Richard Cartwright, NSS Champion for the Business School | UoS Business School Undergraduate News | Scoop.it

I hope Semester 2 is treating you well. As you may already be aware the National Student Survey (NSS) is now open! We’d really appreciate it if you took the time to complete the survey so we can make things even better for students in the Business School. The survey takes less than 10 minutes and is your chance to reflect on your time having studied at the University of Southampton.

 

The NSS is administered by an external organisation who will email and call you to ask that you complete the survey. If you are a Business School student and you complete the survey you will receive a catering voucher, for use on campus, in return.

 

Contact Emma Lester (E.L.Lester@soton.ac.uk ) to claim your voucher. 

 

We hope you will take this opportunity to give us your feedback on how your University of Southampton experience has been.

 

Kind regards,

 

Ricahrd Cartwright

Senior Teaching Fellow in Accountancy

Staff and Students enjoy Justin Urquhart Stewart Lecture

Staff and Students enjoy Justin Urquhart Stewart Lecture | UoS Business School Undergraduate News | Scoop.it

The Business School was excited to welcome Justin Urquhart Stewart to campus to deliver a lecture on wider political and economic events and their impact on business and finance. 

 

Justin gave us an entertaining lecture taking us on the tour of the globe and giving us insights into what is happening beyond the newspaper headlines we encounter. 

 

The lecture was attended by around 100 student and Business School staff and students had a chance to speak with Justin at the end. 

 

Justin is a University of Southampton Alumnus having studied Law and Accounting and after practising as a barrister he entered the world of Finance. He is now one of Britain’s most familiar stockbrokers, a regular commentator on the stock market and Co-founder and Partner at Seven Investment Management (7IM). 

 

This was part of a prize Justin is generously sponsoring for our 2nd years in the Business School. If you are entering for the prize you are not at a significant disadvantage if you were unable to attend the lecture and you may want to look at some of the clips of Justin talking on Youtube.

Welcome back from Head of Undergraduate Programmes

Welcome back from Head of Undergraduate Programmes | UoS Business School Undergraduate News | Scoop.it

Welcome back! I hope you all had a good break and a chance to take your mind off your studies for a while. Now you are back and in study-mode for exams I just wanted to wish you luck and make sure you are aware of some of the places you can go for study support. 

 

Of course you should all be familiar with the library which now open 24 hours so you should be able to find a space to work. There are also other places on campus where you can work if you don't want to use the library, some of these are outlined in a link on this page (SUSU blog). 

 

If you have any problems with exams please make sure you contact your Personal Academic Tutor. Any problems with this, as we said in the last newsletter, please contact the Senior Tutor Andrew Stainton. 

 

There is also support available from the Advice Centre which is run by the Student's Union. 

 

Best wishes for the exams and wishing you a successful 2016

 

Anita Krishnan

For example factors of social justice, wellbeing, economic stability, ethical practices, poverty alleviation, cultural issues, politics and governance.

We are offering you the opportunity to present (10 minutes presentation or poster) your research at academic level: however you should not see this as extra work, simply the chance to share what you have learnt, discovered and already written through your research.
