Academic writing at Post-graduate level in English (seminar)

Montag, 10.11.2014





On Monday, 10th November, Dr. Clare Furneaux (National Teaching Fellow, Associate Professor in Applied Linguistics) held a seminar on academic writing at post-graduate level in English. Thank you for joining us for an exciting and informative evening that hopefully helped all participants make good progress with their thesis and dissertation writing in English!




This seminar was aimed at postgraduate students who have to write a dissertation/thesis in English. We explored what is involved in academic writing at this level, and the challenges created. My focus was on writing up empirical research, and drawing on my experiences within a UK university setting, but I hope the issues discussed were of relevance to anyone writing up research in humanities/social sciences.
