These papers are very useful for improving the skills required for university study by students whose first language is not English. Students who would like to develop their confidence in the skills of speaking, writing, reading and listening in English are encouraged to choose an ENSLA paper as one of their elective papers. All papers are supported by the University's online learning system.

Note: There will be no new enrolments in the English as a Second Language supporting subject in 2018. Students who commenced a supporting subject in English as a Second Language in 2017 or prior should consult the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences for programme advice.
