As an undergraduate, 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, clear and, most importantly, academically literate. Look at the courses below and pick the one that suits you best.
