This workshop develops and refines the written academic English
skills of BA-level students and international exchange students
from across the University of Copenhagen.
On completion of this workshop in Academic English, students should
be able to produce well-structured, written academic English. In
addition, students will develop process writing skills, which will
enable them to successfully negotiate their written exams in
English-medium university level courses.
As a four-session workshop with interactive class discussions and a
student and teacher peer-revision for the written activity, the
course takes its point of departure in the academic writing needs
of the individual student. During the workshop, students are
therefore required to hand in one essay in academic English
representative of the subject they study. Active participation and
a good portion of self-study are expected in the
