Person in charge

General description

The Grammar for Academic Writing course is designed for doctoral candidates from all faculties who need to write articles for international publication and who would need help with writing accurately in English.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course the course participants should be able to write more accurately in academic English. Students should be more aware of the typical grammatical mistakes related to academic writing and have devised strategies for avoiding them in the future.


This course gives the fundamental rules and guidelines for the practical grammar needed for effective academic writing. Aspects covered include effective use of articles, prepositions, nominalization, verb use, sentence structures and common mistakes. Students will use their own writing and in-class activities to practice grammar in context. In all exercises, the emphasis is on effective academic communication through grammar, not grammar for its own sake.
