The two modules are now delivered in a blended learning mode where students watch video lectures online in their own time and then attend face to face seminars in which they are able to practice what they have learnt in the online lectures and consolidate their understanding.

Students completing the new two-module program gain skills that help them manage the academic demands of their studies while at the university.

MOFAT EXCHANGE PROGRAM:
China - Brunei

It was a sad farewell to our two MOFAT students this year. Zhang Xin and Zhu DeKai returned home in late April and with barely a blink were back at work in their offices.

At the Certificate ceremony both students made a speech thanking MOFAT, the University and the LC. The improvement in their English and in their confidence from where they began eight months ago was evident. Both were congratulated and presented with certificates by Charge d'Affaires, Mr Fang Xinwen on behalf of the Chinese Embassy.

The MOFAT China - Brunei exchange program has been running for 15 years and is the longest running consultancy for the Language Centre.

As part of their coursework for LE 2503 English Communication Skills II: Academic Report Writing and Presentations, students were required to submit a video in which they presented key findings of their research report for this subject.

The video above is a compilation of excerpts from some of the best. None are perfect, but all of them display some excellent features and many show a great balance of fun, hard work and academic style. Congratulations to these students (and many others) who did an excellent job in their report and in their video.

Thank you to all of the students whose work appears on the video for granting permission to use it to help future students of the course.
