The transition to Higher Education presents students within the first year with a number of social and academic challenges. One of these is understanding and meeting the expectations for academic coursework at university. This task is not a simple one, or one for which students feel prepared, and can be a significant source of anxiety. This interactive workshop will highlight some of the ways in which we can support our students in the transition to academic writing based on ongoing work as part of the Academic Skills module in the Department of Psychology.
