Advising and Office Hours

As an international student or scholar, you may have questions about TGS’s English Proficiency Requirement, testing, community English language resources, or long-term professional development as a non-native speaker living and working in a North American academic setting.

Advising Sessions: We are happy to meet individually with Northwestern students and scholars to discuss our programs and services, as well as professional development opportunities and resources for developing your English language communication skills. Please contact our Program Coordinator Brian Hampson at elp@northwestern.edu or call us at (847)-467-6053 for information on advising sessions with our faculty and staff.

Office Hours are held weekly for students and scholars of Northwestern University year-round. Students who are already enrolled in Linguistics 482 Individual Instruction may attend office hours if they would like extra help, or make up a missed weekly session. Those not already enrolled in Linguistics 482 may use office hours as a way to get occasional individualized support without a regular appointment.
