The course consists of 6 two-hour sessions spread over three weeks in September. The four grammar sessions will be part lecture, part seminar, covering the noun phrase, the verb phrase, punctuation and complex sentences. The two writing sessions will concentrate on structure, academic idiom, formality and coherence.
Each participant submits an existing research proposal at the beginning of the course, and will receive feedback on this text during the course. The final assessment consists of the reworked text. Participants will also be offered an individual tutorial of 45 minutes to wrap up the course, to be scheduled approximately three weeks after the end of the course, which will include advice on how best to tackle any major language problems.
