In an academic writing course, you’ll learn how to express yourself using formal, precise and nuanced language. The language centre offers a general PhD course for PhD and master’s students in all disciplines. We also offer specialised courses for master’s and PhD students in Psychology, Biomedical Sciences and Health Sciences.
'The reason why I chose the Language Centre was because the course was an online one. It turned out to be a very stimulating and positive experience, not in the least because of the input of an enthusiastic mediator (Neill Wylie). The course is for different levels of PhD’s, novice as well as more experienced. I am confident this course helps me to further improve my academic writing skills!’
