Workshops

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.

Your teachers keep insisting on it: your text must have a clear structure! This makes sense, because a clear structure makes a text more pleasant to read and easier to understand. In this workshop you will learn how to structure your text in a crystal clear way at both chapter and paragraph level, for example by using core sentences and signal words. In this way you will lift your academic writing skills to a higher level.

In this workshop you learn to evaluate your own writing style and to make it more academic where necessary by looking at texts in detail. This way you lift your writing style to a higher level in no time.
