Writing 1 [3 credits]

Even when you are fairly proficient in English, writing academic papers and theses can be quite challenging. This first course in academic writing familiarizes you with the kind of language used in different academic texts. The course consists of interactive lectures, seminars and writing exercises. After completing the course, you will be able to write a well-structured English text in a formal style. Together, the modules grammar and writing 1 form the basis for the Academic English elective programme. Note that to take part in the course we assume a level equivalent to Dutch VWO.
