What’s new this week?

This week we’re starting our new series on Academic Writing for the Sciences. From how to select and read the right papers through to analysing and writing about data. These sessions will tell you all you need to know about writing for the Sciences!

The first session on Tuesday 9 February looks at how we read scientific texts. What information are we looking for? How do we filter through all mountains of difficult language to get the key points? Book on to this session.

Find the full list of Sciences sessions.
