Doctoral Students

English is challenging for me so I was nervous at the start of the abstract and conference skills module. But I gained so much help and confidence that I am really excited about the tools module.

After completing a doctoral degree, you will work as an expert within your own discipline and in society. You will be fluent in the conventions of academic expression. You will perceive writing as an integral part of a researcher’s professional skills and career path. You will be motivated to develop your communication skills and to use writing as a resource in research work. Your goal will be to evolve into an independent researcher with an original voice, one who can critically engage with the dominant ideas in your discipline and offer alternative views. The Language Centre’s courses will help you achieve these goals by developing your academic communication skills.
