Welcome to EEPRS

Effective English for Postgraduate Research Students (EEPRS) is an advanced academic English programme launched in September 1998 by the Department of English, to provide support, advice and guidance to postgraduate research students at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Since its inception in 1998, EEPRS has offered help and support to more than 1,900 workshop and mentoring session participants from various departments at the PolyU, through more than 170 one-to-one, face-to-face mentoring sessions, and more than 100 general, department-specific and faculty-specific workshops and tailored courses. The feedback from research students and staff has been extremely positive, and awareness of the value and contributions of the EEPRS programme continues to grow.

In addition to generic workshops, EEPRS offers three non credit-bearing subjects: "Communication Strategies in Research Contexts in English" (in conjunction with the ELC), ‘Writing Research Articles’, and ‘Advanced Oral Skills’.
