As undergraduates your main form of examination is via written assignments, mostly essays and exam scripts. It is, therefore, essential to develop a good level of academic writing ability so that the content of your piece is coherent, fluent and clear.



Masters academic writing is the first step into research writing. Your writing should be able to demonstrate not only your ability to analyse and critically engage with material and develop complex arguments, but also aspects of originality.



The standard of academic writing is most advanced at postgraduate research level. We offer The Academic Writing Series, thesis writing groups and writing consultations which cover in detail all aspects of research and doctoral thesis writing.
