Learning outcomes

On completion of the course, students are expected to be able to:
- use different reading strategies when reading academic texts
- understand the basic structure of academic texts
- analyse and understand more complex sentence structures
- use different comprehension strategies to deal with difficult vocabulary
- reflect on their own learning strategies and experiment with new ones

General description

It is recommend that students take both preparatory courses (KKENPRE1 and KKENPRE2) simultaneously. Students who register for both courses will be given priority. If you have completed the Introduction to Academic English course, you will not be accepted to this course. The credits for this course cannot be included in the 15 credits of communication and language studies.

Enrolment for University Studies

In cases where more students register for a course than space allows, priority is assigned as follows: 1. First priority is given to the degree students of the University of Tampere. 2. Second priority is given to the exchange students of the University of Tampere. 3. Third priority is given to the Tampere3 students. In addition, there is a quota of 5 for the Open University students in every group.
