We will start by looking at the structure and style of academic writing in general and then move on to how to write an abstract, a good introduction to a paper and a proposal.  Note that it is not a grammar course in English!

By the end of the workshop you will have the skills necessary to apply to any academic written task.  It will be a practical and hands-on course.
