Mini course on academic writing

Following faculty guidelines, all teaching activities are suspended until April 19th. The two remaining sessions of the mini course on academic writing will be cancelled accordingly. If you were planning on attending one or both sessions, please contact to receive the presentation slides of the session(s). Check this website again for updates on the walk-in session scheduled for April 28th.


Are you struggling to write or to start writing your paper, bachelor's dissertation or master's dissertation in English? The Department of Educational Policy comes to the rescue with a crash course on academic writing. The mini course consists of two sessions: one on writing preparation and structure, and one covering specific language and (academic) style issues.

The mini course is open to all UGent students, and you do not need to register in advance. Just show up on time for one or more of the sessions. The series is organized twice in the first semester and you can combine any 'Academic Writing I' session with any 'Academic writing II' session. Just pick the dates that fit your schedule!

You don't have to stay the entire afternoon, just walk in (and out) when you feel like it!
