A soft launch for English for Business and Economics

On Tuesday 28 May, with little in the way of fanfare, studyFIT quietly opened the bridging course English for Business and Economics.  A steady stream of students have already signed up, but with the official announcement it is expected that more will join.

“The course launch coincided with a presentation we were giving at the European First Year Experience conference in Copenhagen,” explains Dr Prue Goredema, “So it unfortunately did not receive the attention it deserved.”

The Moodle-based course is a self-paced one, so students need not feel pressured to race through all the content.  In all, one needs to dedicate at least 150 hours of elbow grease in order to get the most out of the course.

It ought to go without saying, but you don’t have to be a student of Business and Economics to take the course, but you will have to contend with readings and exercises that cover themes such as Innovation, Trade and Competition: all very exciting ways to build one’s vocabulary.

Course highlights include:

  • Interviews with academics
  • Lectures on writing an awesome thesis
  • Insights into contemporary aspects of Business and Economics

As for your initial competence, as this is an advanced course, you need to have attained, at the very least, a B2 on the global scale of the Common European Framework.
