Description

Pre-requisite

  • Please bring with you (or make sure you can access) a piece of writing that you have done so far in relation to your PhD study. This may be your research proposal, if you are in the early stages of research, or part of a chapter if you are further along. 

Content

  • In this session you will:
  • Identify issues which can make doctoral writing difficult, as well as methods for resolving these
  • Consider the parts of a thesis, and what the writing in each section needs to convey
  • Think about how writing helps to create structure, coherence and argument
  • Develop techniques in writing critically and analytically, as well as integrating sources into your discussion
  • Refresh your knowledge of good academic writing at word and sentence level, including grammar and punctuation
