The faculty, year, and level coordinators provide guidance to students to overcome any academic, administrative, or personal problems they may encounter in following the intensive course and on-going proficiency/certificate courses in English. Students also have the option of discussing any academic issues they may face with their lecturers.
ACADEMIC AND LANGUAGE SUPPORT CENTRE (Link to ALSC’s website)
The new Academic and Language Support Centre, established under the World Bank-supported AHEAD project (2019-21), fulfils the need in the Faculty in providing a structure to encourage students to read in English. The Centre promotes collaborative peer learning to strengthen student motivation to engage with English beyond the classroom.
The Language Lab of the Department of English Language Teaching has thirty computers, providing students with the opportunity for autonomous learning. Carefully selected and prepared computer-based study material is available in the Lab to be used by the undergraduates at their convenience.
The DELT Resource Library is located in the Visiting Lecturer’s Staff Room #108, First Floor, Faculty of Arts. You may Contact your Faculty Coordinator if you wish to refer books from the Resource Library.
