Academic writing is an important part of being a researcher. However, many are not formally trained in this skill. This course has been developed to assist students who are struggling to prepare academic documents as part of their candidature. You will receive guidance and examples relating to the Humanities and Social Sciences discipline on writing academic publications and candidature documents.

The course will make use of authentic academic texts for reading and analysis.
