GASA Academic Writing Toolkit 1: Essay Writing (Sat)

Venue: Birkbeck Main Building, TBA

There are no tickets available for this event but you may wish to join the waiting list

*This session (Saturday 31 August) is fully booked with a waiting list of 150 students. This essay writing workshop will repeat on Tuesday 3rd and Monday 9th September from 6.30-8pm, and both sessions have places available.*

In this workshop we will look at how to approach your essay from the time you receive the assignment until the deadline. We briefly consider how to analyse the question or topic, how to approach the research and reading, how to create an essay plan and structure for your essay, and how to write the first draft. We will also consider how to build an academic argument.

Please note these workshops are open to Birkbeck College students only.

The Get Ahead, Stay Ahead (GASA) series of workshops is primarily targeted at new students beginning their studies in 2019-2020, though any Birkbeck students may attend. Study skills workshops for all students run throughout the academic year.
