The English Language Development Certificate

You can gain formal recognition of your participation in extra-curricular English language activities through the English Language Development Certificate. The certificate shows that you have actively invested in developing your English throughout your studies and will be recorded on your HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Report) transcript when you graduate.
