University Success provides a package of assessments that can be used as precourse diagnostics, midcourse assessments, and final summative assessments. The flexible nature of these assessments allows teachers to choose which assessments will be most appropriate at various stages of the program. These assessments are embedded in the student book and are available online in MyEnglishLab.

Each book in the series is supported with:
  • Comprehensive downloadable teaching notes in MyEnglishLab that detail key points for all of the specialised, academic content. In order to meet the challenge of working with topics that are unfamiliar to teachers, the Teacher Resource Folder includes specific notes to help teachers understand the key points, history, and culturally important references in the content, allowing them to easily elaborate on content in the classroom. Additionally, tips and suggestions for how to teach skills and strategies are included.
  • An easy-to-use online learning management system offering a flexible gradebook and tools for monitoring student progress
  • Essential tools, such as audio and video scripts and word lists, to help in lesson planning and follow-up.

Of the 5 levels available, this book is Transition Level GSE 68 - 80 (B2+ to C1)
A deep dive for transition-level students, the Transition level mirrors the academic rigor of college courses.
Series overview
University Success is for English language learners preparing for academic environments. Through five levels, from Beginning to Transition, the course carefully scaffolds skill development to help students become autonomous learners. Students master essential skills and gain confidence in studying academic degree courses taught in English.

Authentic lectures, readings, and writing strategies created and delivered by professors from Stanford University provide real-life learning experiences.

University Success is the first-ever English language course that fuses intensive and rigorous skill development and expanded application, at the same time as meeting the unique academic, social, and linguistic needs of English language learners.

Rigorous academic preparation is carefully scaffolded with the systematic skill development that English language learners require to close their skills gap and become autonomous learners.

Challenging academic content ensures students are prepared quickly and appropriately to handle the challenges of academic work.

University Success supports programs that adopt the accelerated instruction model by allowing them to take advantage of authentic texts and exercises that enable students to develop vocabulary, reading, and listening strategies.
