POSTGRADUATE COURSEWORK

Writing Hub postgraduate units of study are designed to increase your abilities in writing, communication, and critical literacies, including digital literacy. We offer a range of units to cater for writers at all levels, from those struggling with English or academic writing conventions to more confident writers wishing to improve their writing and persuasiveness for particular audiences. We provide students at all levels with proven strategies for both producing effective writing and critically analysing a range of texts.

The Writing Hub offers two streams of postgraduate units of study: Professional and Advanced Writing (WRIT), and Academic English and Critical Literacies Support (FASS).

PROFESSIONAL AND ADVANCED WRITING

These Professional/Advanced Writing UoS are appropriate for students from all disciplines planning to enter the workforce or those already engaged in workplace writing, editing, and communication contexts. These UoS are also beneficial for students wishing to improve their abilities to produce “everyday” writing, including emails, job applications, CVs, cover letters, complaint/commendation letters, and good/bad news letters.

ACADEMIC ENGLISH AND CRITICAL LITERACIES SUPPORT

These UoS are highly recommended for anyone wishing to improve their Academic English and Critical Literacies, including students whose first language is not English, International students, and those who may be returning to the academy after an extended break. The programs of study focus on critical reading and thinking, academic writing, research skills, and academic presentations.
