Workshop series: become a better writer

The Become a better writer series of English language workshops for academic writing continues this term. The workshops are particularly useful for students whose first language is not English and are open to both undergraduate and postgraduate students who want to develop the accuracy and style of their writing. They cover topics such as 'developing a strong argument’ ‘developing your academic style' and 'grammar tips for academic writing'. For more details of the sessions, and to book, select the workshops tab above.

All of the sessions are stand-alone, so you can sign up for the ones that are most relevant to you. We look forward to meeting you there!
