Academic writing is a process of inquiry that requires students to use and develop a range of skills. The ability to write academically is not only a valuable skill in its own right but also one that will support students in other areas of their studies.

The following pdf book is published to help students get the most out of their academic writing:

  1. Start early: Academic writing can be a time-consuming process, so it is important to start early and allow yourself enough time to plan, research and write your piece.
  2. Plan your work: Once you have started early, it is also important to plan your work. This means creating an outline of your paper, including the main points you want to make and the evidence you will use to support them.
  3. Do your research: A key part of academic writing is ensuring that you have done enough research to support your argument.
