The English Language Teaching Unit (ELTU) of the Faculty of Science was established in 1986 as an independent unit for the purpose of providing academic support for the students to follow the degree programmes in the English medium. To meet this objective, the ELTU conducts three courses: the Intensive English Course and the EN100 and EN200 On-going Courses in English.
Students first follow the Intensive Course in English which is an orientation programme. The On-Going Courses in English are offered for students in the first and second year. The course offered for the first year students is an EAP (English for Academic Purposes) course aimed at facilitating the students with their academic studies. The course offered for the second year students is a certificate course in ESP (English for Specific Purposes) to prepare the students for postgraduate studies and career opportunities.
