Department of English

The Department of English is the University’s platform for all students, academic and professional staff who want to improve their language skills. We focus on improving Academic English and communication skills of the students through conducting diverse programmes from intensive programmes to in-depth professional courses.

Through applying modern teaching methods and providing high-quality learning resources we create a space for the students to communicate with others, share their experiences and feel the beauty of the English language.

Moving ahead with the emerging trends in the contemporary social context, Department of English strives to bring forth highly advanced yet distinctively creative English programmes incorporating digital technology in the classroom and blended learning approaches.
