Writing for an academic audience demands a particular writing style that follows certain conventions. This workshop aims to clarify the nature of academic writing style.
- Are you new to/out of practice at writing academic essays?
- Are you unsure what writing style is expected?
- Have lecturers commented that your writing style is not appropriate?
This session will help you to:
- appreciate the importance of supporting your ideas with reference to the "experts"
- understand the main conventions of academic writing e.g. use of formal language; accuracy, conciseness and preciseness of expression; adopting a cautious voice.
- approach academic writing with confidence.
