Writing at University - A Guide for Students
"This is a writing guide for someone who is prepared to
sit down and read about the process of writing and who prefers the
support of a sympathetic tutor rather than a source of reference or a
compendium of rules. It's the sort of book which holds you by the hand
and talks you gently through the issues." Roy Johnson, Mantex
- What is expected of you in university writing?
- What can you do to develop and build confidence in your writing?
- How can you address the variety of written assignments you will encounter in your studies?
Writing at University is a student writing guide with a
difference. It provides a deeper understanding of what writing at
university is all about, with useful methods and approaches to give you
more control over your academic writing.
The book explores both traditional essay and other kinds of writing
that you will need to do as part of your studies. You are encouraged to
build upon your existing abilities as a writer through applying
practical tasks to your own work.
The second edition of this best-selling title has been completely
updated with new coverage of report writing, learning journals,
electronic writing and using the internet.
This book is an essential tool for anyone who wants to improve their
writing skills at university or FE colleges, including both
undergraduates and postgraduate students. It is key reading for
students in courses that require essay, report, or dissertation writing
and for students returning to study. It is also an invaluable resource
for academic staff who want to support students with their writing.
