​Language and communication

The Division for Language and Communication (DLC) provides teaching in Chalmers’ undergraduate, master’s and postgraduate studies and professional education and courses for teachers and researchers. The division’s educational tasks at Chalmers include courses and subject-oriented communication training in academic and language-related writing and various forms of technical and scientific communication. An essential part of the work of the division is that courses and training, provided in Swedish and English, are designed as far as is possible in collaboration with heads of subjects and heads of programmes to provide optimum support in discipline-specific writing and learning. 

There are also some optional courses that are open to all Chalmers students. More information on the courses is available below.


T
he division is home to the Chalmers Writing Centre (CWC), where students can book writing tutorials with trained tutors. CWC is on both Chalmers campuses and instruction is given in Swedish and English. Students can also book times at CWC to practise presenting, for example, or get help improving their presentations.
