WHAT'S SO GOOD ABOUT THE EUROVERSITY SEMINARS?

The English Language Development Programme provides Euroversity Seminars: English language training for business, communication, education, management, science, technology, and other professional areas.

The Euroversity Seminars are a unique learning experience that support your company's English language development strategy.


Improving your English helps you to meet new people, explain your thoughts, express your feelings, share your ideas, make a better social life, and enjoy your holidays.

Within education, schools, colleges and universities, you can develop the skill that you use most. So much depends on the way you write and speak. From passing exams to teaching others. From making lifelong friends to starting a rewarding job.

In business, industry, and finance, you can be successful, build good relationships, entertain new friends, improve your career opportunities, and make much better use of the internet.

In management, it means that you can deal effectively and confidently with international communication, conferences, multi-national projects, and contracts. And avoid expensive mis-understandings, particularly in these key areas:

meeting and greeting people
making and taking telephone calls
understanding and writing business letters
making offers, preparing estimates, and processing orders
understanding and writing specifications
dealing with information technology
understanding and interpreting commercial documents
understanding and writing technical literature
hosting customers and suppliers
negotiating with foreign businesses
making presentations and preparing conference papers
business trips abroad

The Oxford English Language Development Programme is more immediate and more successful than conventional teaching methods. The courses are interesting, stimulating, and supportive, and provide the focus for any company's English language development strategy.

Learn English for business, communication, education, management, science, and technology, in your own country or in Oxford, England, with the English Language Development Programme.

The courses are not stand-alone crash courses in general English. They're a joint venture with you and your company to make certain you get the English you want and need. They're not a business expense. They're an investment in the future.

THE ELDP: WHAT TO DO NEXT

ACADEMIC VALIDATION AN EXTRACT FROM THE EUROVERSITY CHARTER OF DECLARATIONS

As commissioners of university language teaching centres, and in close association with university departments of continuing education, the Euroversity Operations Centre provides course programmes which combine work experience with academic disciplines. The Centre was accredited by The University of Oxford Local Examination Delegacy as The Centre For Advanced Studies, in 1976.

In 1992, The Centre For Advanced Studies became the Euroversity Operations Centre, guided by an Academic Advisory Council and a Charter of Declarations. The Euroversity Operations Centre is associated with European and international university project groups. Our course programmes in England take place in the facilities of Oxford University.

The Euroversity Operations Centre partners universities, colleges, and language schools as an independent educational facility: an academic consultancy which provides professional development training for universities, organisations, companies, groups, and individuals.
