Workshop in English Academic Writing (2.5 ECTS)

This workshop develops and refines the written academic English skills of Danish and international BA-level students from across the University of Copenhagen.

On completion of this workshop in Academic English, students should be able to produce well-structured, written academic English. In addition, students will develop process writing skills, which will enable them to successfully negotiate their written exams in English-medium university level courses.

As a four-session workshop with interactive class discussions and a student and teacher peer-revision for the written activity, the course takes its point of departure in the academic writing needs of the individual student. During the workshop, students are therefore required to hand in one essay in academic English representative of the subject they study. Active participation and a good portion of self-study are expected in the course.
