Welcome to Academic and Professional Writing

Academic and Professional Writing teaches students strategies for powerful and effective writing and use of English at University, and in professional work beyond degrees, through a range of programs including units for credit (undergraduate and postgraduate coursework electives), online learning, occasional seminars and Higher Degree Research Student associate supervision.

We work mainly with students from the Faculty of Arts, but also students from other Faculties through our units for credit and seminars.  Our students come from many different backgrounds (local and international, English and Non-English Speaking Background) and from all levels of study in the University, from first year to PhD.

We also offer resources, discussion and collaboration on developing student learning, language and writing for staff in the faculty of Arts, and contribute to the Faculty’s research through projects and publications, specialising on issues of Academic writing in Arts and Humanities disciplines.
