The ALP offers courses, workshops, coaching, and individual tutorials for students, PhD researchers, lecturers, and other VU employees who wish to work on their academic writing or speaking skills in both English and Dutch. We also offer advice to programme directors with respect to academic communicative skills of both students and staff. We contribute to various degree programmes with courses and modules on academic writing (Dutch and English) and presentation skills.
Our courses and modules are characterized by a tailor-made approach and extensive individual feedback from experienced teachers of English and Dutch.
We also provide courses for international students and staff wishing to learn Dutch and we also offer extensive support for students and PhD researchers who are writing their thesis or dissertation.
The ALP is a contribution of the Faculty of Humanities to the VU’s language policy.
