GASA Academic Writing Toolkit 1: Essay and assignment writing (Tues)

Venue: Birkbeck Main Building, MAL B34

This event has ended.

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.

This workshop will repeat on Saturday 31st August and Tuesday 3rd September. Please note, due to high demand, a further date has now been added on Monday 9th September. 

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.
