Tracy tells you how to book onto a Wordscope workshop.

Now all of the exams and essays for the second Semester are complete, some of you will be looking forward to a productive summer of reading and preparation for the next semester, and so a constructive and dedicated Academic Writing programme may be just what you need in order to keep you focussed. Or, it could be that you have re-submissions due in the next few weeks for Semester one and/or two and you could do with extra help at both an instructive and personal tutor level. Either way, from now on your marks will be weighted significantly towards your degree class, so it is with this in mind that Dr Carson Bergstrom has developed a short course of Academic Writing Skills.

Based on the “Wordscope” format, the course will be an intense and shortened version of the original, delivered in a series of six workshops. The skills and strategies covered will not only enhance the way that you write but also the way that you organise and structure your thoughts, ideas, and research. Evidence from the “Wordscope programme indicates that if you attend six workshops, you should improve your grades by at least six marks. It is not rocket science: becoming a conscious, coherent, and skilled writer will increase your chances of a higher degree class.
