ENGLISH LANGUAGE FOUNDATION UNIT (ELFU)

 

ELFU door

Welcome to our Academic Writing Unit! We offer a range of helpful courses all geared towards improving academic writing at the tertiary level. Our instructors are highly trained and willing to offer assistance and guidance to all students at our Writing Centre. Here is our course listing and Faculty and School requirements.

We firmly believe that good writing is essential to academic success and the day-to-day sharing of information. Good writing is also one of the most powerful means by which we formulate our thoughts and shape our values, including the higher order of values which give meaning to life and purpose to human activity. In this regard, our curricula cover concepts, issues, ideas, principles and practices that all reflect the philosophy "humani nihil alienum": nothing concerning humanity is foreign to us! We therefore do everything in our power to help you to acquire the necessary communicative competencies by means of the written word.
