Workshop Basic skills in academic writing

Whether you come from high school or college, academic writing at university can be a big switch and challenge. What exactly is an academic text? How do you come up with a good research question? How do you give your paper a clear structure and use an academic writing style? In this workshop, we will address these questions and teach you the basic rules and techniques of academic writing, so you know exactly how to approach your next academic writing assignment.
