Academic Literacies Programme

The ALP comprises the English for Academic Purposes Programme, the Academic Research and Writing Programme, the Creative Writing Programme and the University Writing Center and Language Workshop. It is also responsible for Richmond’s Academic Reading and Writing Placement Assessment and for the pre-university Richmond English for Academic Purposes programmes.

The overall mission of the ALP is to empower students to communicate effectively, proficiently and appropriately throughout their undergraduate studies and beyond. Through its range of offerings, the ALP develops skills that are essential for academic success while nurturing a student’s own “voice” and viewpoint. The ALP trains students to monitor their individual practice with a view to becoming ethical, responsible, independent scholars.
