Writing properly at university

Students writingSpeaking good English, writing accurate English and writing appropriate academic English are all different. Adopting a suitable style when writing at university will help you gain better marks.

In this 2 hour workshop we focus on:

  • What is academic writing style?
  • What is the difference between formal and informal style?
  • How do you write in an impersonal, objective way?
  • What is caution and how can you express it?
  • What vocabulary, verbs and structures should you avoid in academic writing style?
