The course is designed for students who are new to the university context or who have been out of study for a significant period of time. The aim of this course is to enable these students to clarify expectations about academic culture, study academic discourse, review academic writing conventions across the Humanities and Social Sciences and develop the appropriate skills to read critically and write appropriately in an academic context. Students will analyse the arguments and the linguistic features of readings specific to their particular disciplines by exploring themes that are relevant to strategic, security and operational issues. Students will be expected to write both a reading report and a short research essay on a topic related to their studies.
