This workshop continues the theme of Patterns and chunks in academic writing (1), looking at how writers signal the organisation of their texts using a repeated repertoire of language chunks. This is a practical workshop and it would be useful to have examples of your own writing to hand to help you participate.

Attendance at Academic writing in Patterns and chunks (1) is not a prerequisite for attendance at this workshop.

ADTIS In-Sessional - Improving Presentations new Wed 21 Feb 2024   17:00 In progress

We are often called on to make presentations about our work, whether for assessment purposes, at a conference, or simply when sharing ideas with colleagues in our Departments. This workshop offers some tips on best practice in presenting and serves as a precursor to the workshop on 28 February, where students will have the opportunity to practise presenting and receive feedback.

No preparation is required before attending this workshop; however, if you are working towards making a presentation in the near future, you may find it helpful to bring your notes, slides, or other material with you.

ADTIS In-Sessional - Presentation Practice new Wed 28 Feb 2024   17:00 [Places]

This workshop offers the opportunity for up to seven students to present for 15-minutes each, on a subject of your own choice. This could be repeating a presentation you have given previously, practising a presentation you are due to give in the near future, or even designing a presentation for the purposes of the workshop in order to improve your presenting skills.

You will receive feedback on both your spoken English and presenting style on completion of your presentation, as well as the opportunity to field questions from the rest of the group.

N.B. – although the maximum number of presenters is seven, further students may sign up to watch and ask questions.

ADTIS In-Sessional - Punctuation new Tue 27 Feb 2024   16:00 [Places]

This online webinar will explain correct usage of commas, capital letters, hyphens, apostrophes, quotation marks, full stops, colons and semicolons. There is nothing to do before the lesson.

Do you want to increase the probability of completing your PhD on time and be happier doing it? Come along to this talk given by our ADTIS Life Coach, Dr Sue Jackson who will share the "Seven Secrets of Highly Successful Research Students” with you. You will be asked to reflect on what each of these “secrets” means to you, and prepare an action plan accordingly. You will also be introduced to what life coaching is about and shown how to sign up for an individual life coaching session if you wish. Please bring a notebook or paper and something to write with.

CULP: French Advanced charged Tue 24 Oct 2023   10:00   [More dates...] In progress

With effect from August 2022 CULP Advanced level students will be included in the population for the HESA student return. We obtain much of the information required via the annual student registration exercise. CULP students, who are not currently following another course of study, will receive an email inviting them to complete Registration. At the start of the student registration process there is further information about the data collection for statutory purposes and the relevant privacy notices from the University and HESA.

The Programme offers general language tuition with a focus on communicative competence.

At an advanced level, the focus shifts slightly towards reading and writing whilst still offering plenty an opportunity for oral communication. The syllabus is more topical and the contents feature many a cultural, historical, political and current affairs theme. While the grammar is analysed within a context, explicit grammar instruction becomes an integral part of the course.

One of the aims of the advanced level courses is also presentation skills as the courses aim to cater to the academic needs (i.e. research, conferences) of the students.

More detailed information is available on our website.

NB: Advanced courses are official, award-bearing University qualifications.

Please also note that the certificates and transcripts are usually issued in July.

CULP: French Basic for Academic Purposes (LAP) Wed 18 Oct 2023   15:30   [More dates...] In progress

Using close reading and translation of academic texts from their particular discipline, this weekly class is intended to help research students in the Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences to develop their skills in reading French documents that they have come across or may meet in their research.

The course aims to develop strategies for reading longer texts faster through close analysis, grammatical and stylistic commentary, and translation. For example, literary texts with differing editions, stories with two or more translations into English that need to be compared and evaluated, poems of challenging originality or range of allusion.

Classes will be conducted in English, but there will be many opportunities to use French and practise reading aloud.
