About Academic Marker
Whether you’re a non-native speaker of English, have just started your first degree, or are a new teacher or experienced university lecturer, you’ve probably found Academic Marker because you’re looking for information and materials about English and life as an academic. Perhaps you wish to chat in our friendly forums, or maybe you’d like to learn more about grammar, vocabulary or essay writing. Whatever your purposes are for visiting, here you’ll find a clear and easy-to-access library of lessons and resources, language examples, academic advice and rewarding activities.
Academic Marker was created at the end of 2018 for those studying or teaching primarily in English at academic institutions. We’ve been students, teachers and course convenors ourselves, and so we know through decades of experience what it really means to be part of an academic community and how challenging that experience can be – particularly in a second language. Recently, our group of global academics decided that the best thing to do with this knowledge and experience was to freely pass it on to you. By carefully designing lessons, materials and services, our professionals aim to improve your overall English language, skills, knowledge and grades, while making your life as an academic that little bit easier.
Our lessons will always be free for our students, and to keep our other services as accessible as possible, we’ve also created our very own system of Academic Marks©. By joining our community, you’ll instantly receive five free marks plus an additional mark for every day that you log in. These marks can be used to access our downloadable worksheets and PowerPoint materials, or to visit our jobs board and submit proofreading. You can even book a tutorial with one of our experts if you’re still a little confused about a topic. Ultimately, our aim at Academic Marker is to help you guarantee academic English success.
