Academic writing in English E2017

To publish in international journals, you need to write competent and professional academic English. This course for academic/scientific staff at AAU is designed to help you publish your research in English. It provides advanced training and coaching in the effective communication of complex ideas in accessible written English. Insight into good written English is provided in class and immediately followed by practical application. In the workshops, we primarily focus on the text you are currently working on in your research and help you develop the skills you need to improve it. In other words, the benefits of the course are both immediate and long term.

Academic staff and research students of any discipline who need to communicate in written English at a high level.
