Manjet Kaur Mehar Singh

The need for competency in English language is one of the most important requirements expected by the employers nowadays. Therefore, a university plays an important role in ensuring that undergraduates are equipped with the language skills relevant to the workplace requirements. This study obtained first hand information from the university undergraduates on their perception of the English language courses that they have already taken or are undergoing at present. It aims to identify whether the English language courses at tertiary level benefit them as individuals and also future workforce. The main methodology employed in this study was a questionnaire survey. It is important to explore and examine the perception of the undergraduates’ self assessment as they are the best informers of the needed information. This study provided some insights through the undergraduates’ feedback. The feedback can assist in assessing the English language courses’ effectiveness and suitability to cater for the current needs of the undergraduates and preparedness for the job market.
