Course details

During this program, you will produce a short piece of academic writing.

Starting with a personal point of view on a topical issue, you will develop your skills as a researcher and writer as you turn those initial thoughts into a well-crafted, defensible statement on the topic.

You will also further develop your existing understanding of potential study pathways, through exploring your interests, values, and transferable skills.

Career Development staff will be available for individual consultations on completion of the course. Speak to your facilitator for further information.
