Whether you’re beginning your academic journey or are some way through, it is worth investing time in developing your writing style.

Higher grades are often associated with clear and well-structured arguments, appropriate use of evidence and good communication skills, however it is very common for students to put most of their energy into generally understanding module content. At this event Student Hub Live focus specifically on enhancing your writing skills, in particular how to use an academic voice, conveying your understanding of the question, planning and structuring your work, and referencing.

This hour-long remote broadcast will start at 12pm and will feature interviews with staff and students, tips and worksheets and you’ll be able to share your own experiences and ask questions of our guests — and each other — in the live chat.

If you have already attended their essay planning and writing workshops you will benefit from this session, but it is not necessary to have any prior experience of these events. You don’t need to prepare anything in advance, and you can choose whether to get really involved in the discussions or to sit back and reflect.

Four hundred tickets (with a limit of one per person) are available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis through Eventbrite. Subscribe at Student Hub Live if you would like to be notified about regisration and upcoming events.  

Important notice: This session is very tightly structured, starting promptly and finishing on time, with a strict programme of presentations and group activities. Please log in 15 minutes before the start, so that you can test your equipment and familiarise yourself with the online room.
