English language and research classes for refugee and asylum seeking scholars
Reconnect with Research is an English language course provided by LSE Language Centre for LSE Scholars at Risk and the Centre for the Study of Human Rights. It was launched with a start-up grant from the LSE Annual Fund.
The programme is offered to refugee and asylum seeking scholars with a social science background who would benefit from enhanced English language support and introduction to the UK Higher Education system. The programme will equip academics with the language skills appropriate for pursuing research work and furthering their academic interests. It includes academic writing, analytical and discursive skills and explores current research to promote research-centred language learning.
The course is provided at no cost to participants.
