English as a Second Language

If your first language is not English, these papers will help you improve the skills you need for university study.

Many University of Waikato international students take English as a Second Language (ESLA) papers in order to pursue careers or educational programmes requiring academic English language skills. ESLA papers are also taken by New Zealand permanent residents who want to establish themselves economically and socially in their new home country.

ESLA papers will provide you with instruction and practice in advanced academic language and communication skills, written, oral and aural. All papers are supported by the University's online learning management system Moodle, which enables the publishing of work and teaching of critical thought and analysis, as applied to studying in a university context.
