Diagnostic English Language Needs Assessment (DELNA)

All first-year students, regardless of their language background, must have their academic English assessed at the beginning of their studies. You’ll begin with the DELNA Screening and may be directed to the Diagnosis so that DELNA staff can advise you, if necessary, on further developing your academic English language skills. You will have the opportunity to complete your DELNA Screening during your Faculty Orientation Day.
