Academic writing is one of the most important skills to master at university. Good academic writing refines and focuses the writer's ideas through research and interrogation, then clearly states and properly supports those ideas with effective argumentation and adequate evidence. Achieving a clear, well-argued text requires the development of numerous sub-skills. Have a look at the factsheets in the "related resources" box on this page.
