Academic writing is a specific style of writing required for anything connected to university or academia, such as writing essays, theses, Ph.Ds, or articles for journals. It can be characterised as follows:
Planned and focused: answers the question and demonstrates an understanding of the subject
Structured: logically organised and coherent
Evidence-based: presents ideas that are well-supported and developed
Formal: uses a tone and style that is appropriate, clear and concise
At the Academic Writing Academy, we'll ensure you have the skills to achieve this through our excellent training resources. We are currently developing courses that can help you with writing essays, exams for admissions to university (e.g. IELTS and TOEFL), proofreading of academic work, and academic publishing.
All of our courses have the following elements:
All courses have interesting and engaging pre-recorded lectures to teach and guide you, presented by experienced tutors who will explain everything to you just like in a real classroom. If other students are taking the same course as you, then you can interact with them through the social media functions included within the platform. All lectures are followed up with activities and quizzes to practice and reinforce what you have learned. If you have any questions, the tutor will get back to you as soon as they can to answer them. You can take all the lectures at your own pace and at a time when suits you.
More than a book, a live book
All the courses come with interactive online ebooks, which you can annotate and add notes to. They include educational material but more importantly many exercises that follow each lecture you have had, so you can put what you have learned into practice and check that you have improved your understanding and skills. All your notes will be saved so you can refer back to them later.
Interactive quizzes to practice and test you on your study and learning. Each lecture is followed by one or more quizzes and these will give you a score and will advise you on why your answer is either correct or wrong, so it's all part of the learning process.
