English for Academic Purposes



In the 2013-14 academic year the University Language Centre set up the LEAP project (Learning English for Academic Purposes) with the aim of providing support for lecturers teaching their subjects through the medium of English.

Every year the project provides various types of support:

Workshops on various topics

Summer/Winter School

The project is open exclusively to lecturers at the University of Padova who hold courses in English.

The Summer/Winter Schools can be also open to lecturers from other universities.
