At Torrens University Language Centre we specialise in academic writing skills. Join our masterclass for a taste of what we offer. We’ll show you how to build your skills by focusing on the kinds of references you should use in your writing and on ways to gather information from a number of different sources and put this information together, or synthesize it, so that your text clearly reflects your careful research. With the right strategies, you can learn crucial skills in academic writing and that with practice, these skills will transfer easily to your bachelor’s or master’s program.
