Academic Writing: Reduce Anxiety


This is a popular workshop in universities in the UK and abroad.  The course is based on a unique 7-step approach designed to reduce anxiety and build confidence in academic writing. It is a practice-based session and participants are encouraged to focus on a particular thesis chapter.

This workshop caters to all research areas.  There is a 3 hour and 6 hour version of this course.  An important aspect of the workshop is Dr Ryan's engaging & encouraging teaching style which has been well received by participants during the covid period.
