Academic English Courses for PhD students – 35th cohort – A.A. 2020/21


Every year the CLA organises a number of Academic English courses specifically meant for a particular Phd Cohort; those about to start their 2nd year of doctoral studies.  These courses are organised on the basis of the results of a survey conducted by the PhD Office in 2015 so as to understand the Academic English needs of the doctoral students.

Usually, one first group of classes is held between October and December, and a second one is organised between January and March.

Each course has a maximum of 20/25 participants.

During the 2020/21 academic year the courses will be dedicated to the 35th Phd students Cohort


Updated information about 2021/22 a.y. will be published by the end of September 2021. The courses will be addressed to the 36th and 37th Phd Cohorts.
