Academic Writing

Develop the writing and research skills you will need to produce well-structured academic essays. The session includes reading and note-taking strategies, academic writing and the use of references to back up discussions, paraphrasing information to support main points and the particular conventions that must be followed when referencing at a university level.

Microsoft Word Essential Skills

Use Word to create a basic format for academic essays which can be adapted to suit university guidelines and requirements.  The focus will be on developing appropriate page layouts including margins, line spacing, page breaks, automatic paragraph styles, headers, footers and pagination.  Please make sure that you have the latest version of word downloaded on you device.

Referencing APA & Avoiding Plagiarism (Nursing, Education, Psychology, Business and Accounting)

American Psychological Association Referencing Style (6th Edition) will be covered in detail to correctly present someone else’s work, ideas or data throughout your academic essays.

Without mastering this skill you may unintentionally fail to appropriately acknowledge sources, considered as plagiarism at a university level.
