Academic Writing Development

The course offers a new type of qualification aimed at graduates and professionals interested in studying, researching and teaching writing. The course focuses on writing, rhetoric and literacies research and on the ways this research informs the teaching of writing.

Entry requirements

Successful applicants must normally hold a 2ns class honours degree or equivalent. Any candidates with degrees across the humanities, social sciences and (applied) sciences, and with an interest in academic writing, are welcome to apply.

Equivalent qualifications in English language proficiency may be accepted.
