This programme of guided writing support is designed for second-year doctoral students scoring level 1 or level 2 on DACR A2. The goal is to enable students to take charge of their own writing development and boost their progress to the next stage. The participants will be given the tools to identify and correct persistent errors and issues in their own work. This programme will take place over 8 weeks and will consist of guided self-study and short 1:1 sessions. Participants receive an enriched diagnosis at the start of the programme, which informs the focus of the guided self-study. 1:1 sessions are used to assess progress, give guidance and provide targeted feedback.

If you are eligible for Improving Academic Writing (i.e. if you are a 2nd-year doctoral student scoring level 1 or level 2 on DACR A2), you will receive the recommendation and registration link for this programme with your DACR A2 result. 

Please note that registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
