Semester   Information Semester One and Two Module Coordinator Dr Anna Nunan

This module is designed for international students who wish to develop the academic writing skills required for research and study purposes in an English-medium higher education environment. The module focuses on aspects of academic writing that are transferable across a wide range of academic disciplines and written text types and is particularly useful for graduate students. The aim is to enable students to write a variety of well-structured, fluent and accurate texts to meet a range of academic demands within a research and study context. Students will learn how to use a range of conventions and data sources to enable them to refine and develop their writing competence. They will also learn how to use self-correcting and redrafting processes to critically reflect on and improve their own academic writing. This module will be delivered via small group teaching with classes having a maximum of 18 students. Students will also have access to extra resources and materials via Moodle, the ALC's Virtual Learning Environment
