Reconnect with Research is an English language course with an academic focus for displaced scholars.
The course is open to UK-based refugee or asylum-seeking scholars who would benefit from enhanced English language support and introduction to the UK Higher Education system. It provides access to LSE expertise and resources and aims to assist persecuted scholars in returning to academia.
The Reconnect with Research programme is run by the LSE Language Centre.
Reconnect with Research Summer Programme will be held over 3 weeks in June and July 2014. The heart of the course will be a one-week taught programme, held at LSE in central London. There will be an online preparation week before the main programme and an online follow up assignment week. The course is offered free of charge, with travel and accommodation bursaries offered to successful applicants. More information will be posted here in March 2014.
The weekly Reconnect with Research programme is held by way of a two hour class on twelve Tuesday evenings, split over two terms. The course will next run from October 2014 - March 2015. More information will be posted here in Summer 2014.
