The Research Writing Programme
The Research Writing Programme is aimed at second year PhD students. It focuses on a range of structural and stylistic issues in the research writing process. It considers the range of audiences that candidates may be writing for and the different types of research outputs and public engagement events that they may be writing for. It is particularly well placed for students who are mid-way through their research work, but are still considering options and approaches for the finalization of the thesis and related documents. Candidates are encouraged to reflect on their own strategies and writing styles in relation to a series of seminars and workshops and talks from writing experts around the university. Through the programme candidates reinforce what is already working in their writing and consider new or adapted strategies for further writing development.
