Course details

During this five-week 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 career and study pathways, through developing your understanding of career development, and exploring your interests, values, and transferable skills
