Writing is an educated skill. We usually write in our daily life but when it comes to academic writing, it has proved quite different even for the students from English-Speaking countries. The most important academic writing is thesis/dissertation which is the benchmark for evaluating one’s academic achievement in postgraduate levels and even his/her future professional career. Thus, learning how to handle such related issues as choosing an appropriate topic, structure, style, language, citations, and psychological factors such as self-confidence can be critical when writing academic writing.
This course aims to make the participants aware of the strategies and techniques to hunt a researchable topic, the detailed design of a thesis/dissertation, appropriate writing style and conventions, proper language, citation rules and norms with the hope to foster their self-confidence to end up their study with a well-researched piece of work.
