This workshop will help you to write better academic English by explaining how to be concise, cautious and impersonal in your writing. You will have the opportunity to identify and practice using these features of good academic writing.

This workshop is a part of the Communication Skills for International Students programme. It is designed for international students and students who use English as an additional language.

This workshop will take place online in Blackboard Collaborate - guidance on using Collaborate is available. The workshop will have interactive elements and we recommend that if possible you use a laptop or PC with Chrome or Firefox as your browser. You may wish to use an additional mobile device or another tab in your browser for the interactive elements. 

The meeting room for this workshop and session materials are on the Study Skills Blackboard course.
