Pre-sessional Academic English Summer School Celebrates 100% Pass Rate
On Friday 18th September the Language Learning Unit hosted an end-of-course Poster Presentation and Award Ceremony to celebrate the success of the 91 students who participated in this year’s Pre-Sessional Academic English Summer Course.
The session opened in the Chancellor’s Building Gallery with a welcome by Martina Wallner, Head of the LLU, and a congratulatory speech to the students by Professor David Shepherd, Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences.
The event was well attended by staff from across the Keele Community, many of whom had generously given their time over the past 12 weeks taking part in the live lecture series, or providing pastoral support.
The students’ enthusiasm and commitment to their projects was evident from the high quality of the work produced and several lecturers commented on the profound improvement in the students’ level of communication when presenting and discussing their projects.
Having a achieved a 100% pass rate, the cohort received their Certificates of Completion in a short award ceremony led by Pre-sessional Course Director Jody Harlowe, and students and staff enjoyed a luncheon to bring the event to a close.
