We hold several workshops throughout the year addressing various forms of academic writing. Both discipline-specific and more generic workshops are offered on essay, report and FYP writing. These workshops are advertised on our social media accounts and through email and are a great way to pick up tips on the writing style of your discipline. Use the table below to familiarise yourself with the processes, situations and strategies of academic writing. Use the table at the bottom of the page to explore our discipline specific workshops!
