English Courses for University Staff: Language and Culture Policy (LCP)

Language and Culture Policy (LCP) of the University of Groningen

A Language and Culture Policy (LCP) was approved at the University of Groningen in 2014, in consultation with students and staff from throughout the organization. The Language Centre was closely involved in drafting and developing the policy, and will in the period 2014-2018 contribute substantially to the implementation of the policy by actively offering targeted support to faculties and service units, support staff, lecturers and students. This support will mainly be in the fields of language skills and intercultural competences. Please see the LCP website.

Examples of Possible Courses

Language Centre English courses can be given as one-to-one courses, for small groups or for entire organizations. They can be given in the form of presentations, short workshops, longer trainings or competence development trajectories. The workshops can also be offered as a set of tailor made workshops to suit specific needs regarding job functions and departments at our university of Groningen.
