Programme description This programme provides an intermediate award for students who are not sure if they are ready for study at the Bachelor’s Degree level. All the courses taken in the Associate Degree programme will count towards a Bachelor’s Degree if the students decide to further their studies later. The programme starts by constructing a foundation of language proficiency and understanding upon which to build more demanding studies of the English language. Through their studies in the programme, they will gain communicative skills for work and study; a good understanding of the structure and use of the language; a critical ability to analyse language and literature in context; an understanding of language and society and the place of English in the world and communicative skills for work in general and for further study.
