Credit-bearing units

Some universities offer credit-bearing units that have a particular focus on the development of students’ language skills and knowledge. The University of Newcastle’s Academic Skills for International Students, and Monash University’s Academic Writing are examples of generic units for credit.

Some, like Murdoch University’s Writing Academic English, are only available to students who have English as an additional language, as are Griffith University’s Language and Communication courses. The latter has different versions according to the broad discipline area.
