Contemporary Academic Writing represents a new and interesting approach to writing academic essays, providing staged support and guidance from the sentence level through to whole text.
There is a strong focus on the high-frequency language and grammatical structures that are found in academic writing. The course employs a collaborative approach, whereby students are encouraged to work things out for themselves so as to deepen their understanding, thus enabling them to use this knowledge in real-life situations.
