This course is aimed at students who have studied Arabic for four years part-time, who wish to further improve all four skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening.

The emphasis will be on vocabulary enrichment to enable students to express their points of view in Arabic. There will be a review of grammar from previous years as well as new structures. The topics will be determined by students' level and interest but will concentrate on the world of work and the world around us.

This course is for students with advanced language skills who have the ability to hold a general conversation in Arabic. The course will be taught through the medium of Arabic as much as possible.

Learning and teaching

The emphasis of the course is on participation and students are encouraged to actively participate in class through various non-threatening forms of activities designed to stimulate communication.

Coursework and assessment

To award credits we need to have evidence of the knowledge and skills you have gained or improved. Some of this has to be in a form that can be shown to external examiners so that we can be absolutely sure that standards are met across all courses and subjects. You will not have formal examinations but you may have class tests.

Our assessments are flexible to suit the course and the student. The most important element of assessment is that it should enhance your learning. Our methods are designed to increase your confidence and we try very hard to devise ways of assessing you that are enjoyable and suitable for adults with busy lives.

Library and computing facilities

As a student on this course you are entitled to join and use the University’s library and computing facilities. Find out more about using these facilities.


Our aim is access for all. We aim to provide a confidential advice and support service for any student with a long term medical condition, disability or specific learning difficulty. We are able to offer one-to-one advice about disability, pre-enrolment visits, liaison with tutors and co-ordinating lecturers, material in alternative formats, arrangements for accessible courses, assessment arrangements, loan equipment and dyslexia screening.
