Mature Student Writing Week
Student Learning runs an annual writing week for incoming first-year mature students. This course is an opportunity for mature students to refresh their academic writing skills before returning to university.
Below is the timetable from the course for the academic year 2016. A similar programme will run again in advance of the academic year 2017 and will be available to all incoming first year mature students. Incoming mature students will be sent communication regarding the event beforehand and must register to attend.
Any queries can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
