English Language & Writing Courses

Early Fall Start offers special courses for students who want to improve their English language skills. There is also a special course designed to help all students improve their writing abilities. 

The English language courses are designed to help improve your academic literacy — the ability to read, write and think at a university level — so you can fully participate in course lectures and discussions. The writing course helps ensure your readiness for college-level writing assignments.

Before registering for a course, international students should review the UW English language requirements.
