Event description

Description

This workshop is for doctoral students at any level who would like to improve their academic writing and think about their thesis structure and argument. The session will cover the difficulties and challenges involved in writing a thesis, what each part of the thesis needs to convey, and how to create structure, coherence and argument. It will also provide a refresher on aspects of grammar, punctuation and good academic writing at word and sentence level.

Pre-requisite: You should bring (or make sure you can access) a piece of writing that you have done so far in relation to your doctoral study. This may be a research proposal, if you are in the early stages of research, or part of a chapter if you are further along.

Learning Outcomes:

  • To gain an understanding of the principles of good academic writing for doctoral level
  • To identify aspects of successful academic writing, and how this can be achieved
  • To understand the different types of writing involved in producing a thesis
  • To start developing your own writing skills, and be able to identify areas for further improvement
