Enhance your academic writing skills with our intensive face-to-face academic writing skills workshop. You will learn the broad academic categories of style and structure, with a focus on complexity and formality, referencing, punctuation, grammar, as well as writing an essay introduction, body, and conclusion.

During our face-to-face weekend workshop you will deconstruct exemplar texts and analyse the features of quality academic writing. Build your teamwork skills and confidence as you complete writing activities in groups and individually.

Our workshop provides a valuable opportunity to ask questions and interact with your subject coordinator and other students. We'll provide you with online support and feedback following the workshop.

While all of our workshops are scheduled to be held in Sydney, there will be a venue change after March, 2018. You can find out more information about our intensive weekend workshops (when and where they're held) by visiting our workshops page.

SSS031 is only delivered as a face-to-face intensive weekend workshop. SSS034 is a variation of this content and is only offered online. You will only need to enrol in one of these subjects as the content is very similar.
