English language support

If you’re learning English as a new language, or would like help to improve your understanding of written and spoken English, there are various support services available.

Diagnostic English Language Needs Assessment (DELNA)

  • DELNA helps to identify your level of English listening, reading and writing skills.
  • It guides you to the most appropriate English language support based on your strengths and weaknesses.
  • It is not a selection tool and is not used to exclude you from a particular programme or course.
  • There is no cost and the results do not appear on your academic record.
