Workshop: Grammar for Thesis Writing

February 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


This course is for research students (including Honours) from all faculties. It is equally useful for local and international students.

People already writing their dissertations generally find the course most useful. If you’ve only just started your research degree, you should wait a bit longer before taking this course – the first few months are more about background reading.


These sessions focus on grammatical rules in terms of (1) technical correctness and (2) clear, fluent and effective communication. These habits develop through practice, so you’ll get most from it by being involved every week.


Each week, we’ll look together at one student’s academic writing. Everyone works together to discuss and understand that work’s grammatical issues – and how to use them in your own writing.

The teacher helps organise and clarify these issues in each student’s work so the discussions progress logically, helping students make use of the various mistakes/constructions.

These sessions are about YOUR work, and will be based on YOUR writing, so be ready to discuss examples of your work with others.


To register, email Nicholas Collier at nicholas.collier@newcastle.edu.au. These workshops are about your writing. When you register, you’ll need to send a sample (about 1 page) of your writing to the above e-mail.
