Are you a PhD student of Erasmus University Rotterdam? Are you in the process of writing a PhD thesis or academic article and would you like to have some help?

You gain experience with various aspects of scientific writing by making assignments. In addition,you give (and get) feedback and you will learn from good examples of others and are being
confronted with your own mistakes and those of others. Course participants are expected to spend approx. three hours a week on course preparation and self-study.

These courses consists of six group sessions and one individual session. In this course you learn how to write academic texts in proper English. You'll learn about the pitfalls for non-native authors, the dos and don'ts and the conventions. We will work on:

  • formulating an argument;
  • excellent organisation and coherence at text level;
  • writing good paragraphs;
  • structure and discourse;

  • accessing literature sources and applying this to your writing.
