Improving your writing skills

Students in the Centre for Academic English

If you feel like you need to enhance your writing skills, some departments offer special classes to help you with this. Your personal tutor may also be able to advise you, or you could ask other students for tips. The Library also runs workshops on academic writing, and there are lots of writing and study skill books available which could be useful to you.

The Centre for Academic English provides an extensive range of courses and workshops to develop the academic STEMM communication competence of all Imperial College London academics, researchers and students, both native and non-native speakers. The Centre offers support with academic communication needs at each stage of your studies, including writing a lab report, presenting a poster, writing a literature review, writing a thesis – and many more.
