What’s on this term?

English for Academic Writing Workshop Series

These weekly workshops are particularly useful for students whose first language is not English. They are open to both undergraduates and postgraduate students. The workshops cover topics such as working with source material, writing effective paragraphs and developing your writing style.

Registration is required, and can be accessed from the Workshops tab above, or via the English language development Moodle.

All of the workshops are stand-alone, so you can sign up for the ones that are most relevant to you.
