This course develops students' academic writing and research skills. Students will critically analyse academic and professional texts in order to learn about the ways in which academic and professional writers communicate their arguments for different audiences. They will practice planning and writing a range of different text types such as essays and reports, using content from their own disciplines wherever possible, and applying appropriate strategies to improve their writing, strengthen their argument and express their meaning more clearly.
