In cooperation with The Knightswood Trust (an educational charity based in Scotland, UK) the Faculty of Law is pleased to be able to offer its students the opportunity to complete a course of study in legal English at the appropriate level during 2012/13.
Students of intermediate level competence in English should apply to participate in the intermediate level course which will comprise weekly lessons in legal English by video conference starting on and from Tuesday, 16th October 2012 from 14:00 – 15:00 in Room 204 (the Main University Building).
The upper-intermediate / advanced level course, which will comprise weekly lessons in legal English by video conference starting on and from Thursday, 18th October 2012 from 14:00 – 15:00 in Room 204 (the Main University Building), is open to students who can demonstrate upper-intermediate or advanced level competence in English.
Lessons will not be held during the fortnight before and throughout university exam periods or during university holiday periods.
Both courses will be taught by The Knightswood Trust’s Director of ESOL Studies, Mr David Stobbs.
After handing in your completed application form, you will be required to complete an assessment paper, under supervision by Olga Volodymyrivna Kunytsya, which will validate your existing level of competence in English. The above mentioned test will be held from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm on 11th October in Room 204.
It is possible that some applicants applying for the intermediate level course will demonstrate a higher level of competence in which case they may be offered a place on the upper-intermediate level / advanced course. Applicants for the upper-intermediate / advanced level course who demonstrate a lower level of competence in English may be offered a place on the intermediate level course.
Each course offered will only go ahead if at least 15 students are accepted for it. The maximum number of places to be offered on each course is 24.
The following conditions must be met by students whose applications to participate in either of the courses are accepted:
1. The student undertakes to achieve an attendance record of at least 80% of the lessons conducted by video conference. Unless granted exemption in particular circumstances by Mr Stobbs, the student must be present throughout each lesson to qualify for an attendance credit.
2. In addition to completing the course material presented at each lesson, the student undertakes to study lexis on a weekly basis, using the guidance notes and vocabulary record sheets to be issued by Mr Stobbs. This will necessitate each student obtaining a copy of the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary (8th Edition) which can be made available at a discounted price of 230 Hrn. The only alternative dictionary acceptable for lexis study is the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary (7th Edition).
