Postgraduate Researcher Development


"I can write clearly about my research in a range of contexts."

Good writing skills are essential to publishing papers, crafting funding proposals and engaging with the public conversation around research. You need to be able to write clearly while tailoring your message to suit the audience and the outcome you're looking for, whether that's fellow specialists, readers of a public blog, funding committee members, and so on.

You also need to understand the academic publishing landscape, impact and peer review.

We provide a range of development opportunities in this area, through both workshops on writing and publication and online resources.

The Language Centre also has an excellent set of online resources on Academic Writing, aimed at international students but still highly relevant to native English speakers, addressing topics such as argumentation, clarity and editing. For a specific focus on public engagement, see the Engaged Researcher programme.
