    Coaching

    Academic staff who feel they would benefit from personalised advice can sign up for fee-paying coaching packages. Coaching is provided on a one-to-one basis for a range of fields including academic/scientific writing, conference presentations, oral communication coaching, preparation for official examinations needed for academic mobility (IELTS and TOEFL), and pronunciation.

    Coaching can be taken in follow up to a course, or as an alternative to a course, in cases where individuals are unable to attend a course, or require limited but specific support.

    Further information for the conference presentations and pronunciation coaching can be obtained under englisch@sprachen.uzh.ch.
