FOR INTERNATIONAL POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS:

This 5-week course  (Tuesdays 6 pm – 7 pm weeks 2 - 6) is open to all LUMS international PGT (postgraduate taught) students and aims to support you with the writing demands of your course.  

In the sessions on Tuesday evenings we will explore the features of the different types of assignments LUMS students have to write, such as essays, reports and reflective writing. We will consider how different aspects of the academic writing process are connected: thinking, reading, planning, style, text organisation, argumentation and referencing conventions. 

Choose the sessions you think will be most helpful.
