The University of Agder runs summer courses in English for refugees who apply for admission to UiA. The course is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays in weeks 27 – 30, running from 10.00 to 15.00 (meal break is included) on the university campus in Kristiansand. In 2022 the first class is on the 5th of July and the last is on the 28th of July.
The course aims to improve the applicants' prerequisites for completing university studies in English. Class starts with listening and discussions in English, and progresses in the last weeks to writing in English in preparation for essay writing.
The course ends with a test where participants receive written feedback. It is possible to deviate from ordinary admission requirements for refugees, for admission to the academic year 2022/2023.
