Tailor-made courses, coaching in English

Our tailor-made English-language courses are designed with your cooperation to ensure that we meet your group’s needs. Most of our clients are academic staff, doctoral students, postdoc groups, and logistics and service organization staff. We offer tailor-made courses at all levels, from A0 (complete beginner) to C2+ (native-speaker competence).

The course formats are designed to your specifications. For example, we have run half-day workshops; 15-week courses à 90 minutes a week; and shorter academic/scientific writing courses (typically five half-days), sometimes combined with one-to-one coaching sessions. Classes range from 3 to 15 participants; one-off lectures on specific topics are offered to considerably larger groups.

For more information on prices and types of courses, contact Dr Michelle Norgate, Head of English, at michelle.norgate@sprachen.uzh.ch.
