Writing Skills for First Year Economics

This class is designed to meet the needs of international students who do not speak English as a first language, and need to write answers for course work and exams in First Year Economics (especially those following EC1101 and EC1103).
Becoming an effective writer of Economics essays and shorter answers means developing your abilities to use material from your lectures and your core text books to write logically structured answers that show your understanding of key information and opinions in your own work. This course will support you in all aspects of the academic writing process. It will include input from digital media and Economics texts, as well as academic writing and study skills resources, with a weekly in-class writing activity and language feedback from the tutor on each piece of writing.
