The Writing Lab's Workshop in Academic Writing Skills for Theses and Dissertations provides postgraduate students with the opportunity to refine their academic writing skills in an interactive, practical way and to receive answers about academic writing in general. Various topics about writing theses and dissertations will be discussed, such as the role of the reader, style, internal and external structure, coherence, argumentation, as well as specific sections of a thesis or dissertation. However, the purpose of the workshop is not to furnish participants with a recipe or rigid writing 'rules' but rather to provide guidelines about using different writing strategies to effectively convey information, data and arguments.
Detailed information and the enrolment form are available on the Language Centre's website. A maximum of 20 participants can be accommodated in the workshop.
