Writing in English at University
Acquiring good writing skills is essential for your success both at university and in your professional life. The course “Writing in English at University” has been designed as a resource for university students who are involved in or wish to prepare for writing assignments or degree projects. As writing conventions differ between disciplines the focus is on generic skills of academic writing. The course covers different aspects of academic writing, such as how to structure your text and how to convey your argument, as well as how to use sources and how to edit your text.
The course aims to provide guidance to all students, but will be especially useful to those with English as second language.
Academic writing (course offered in Swedish)
Do you know a bit of Swedish and would like to improve your academic writing? You may be able to take the Swedish-taught MOOC "Akademiskt skrivande".
