Engelskkurs for administrativt ansatte ved UiB

Kurset tar for seg engelske standarder, stil og vokabular for administrativt personale. Kurset vil bidra til at kursdeltakerne vil føle seg tryggere i å bruke engelsk i møter og i kontakt med utenlandske ansatte og internasjonale studenter. Hele kurset foregår på engelsk, og kursomtalen er derfor også bare på engelsk
