The popular Writing Project is now open for online registration for Term 3. It is an English language support scheme, established to help students improve their written work and therefore their grades and job prospects. Students can enrol at: http://www.writingproject.mmu.ac.uk/.
The Writing Project, which starts during W/c 24th April 2017, is a free course in how to write better English and is open to any Manchester Metropolitan-enrolled student who would like to improve the way they write. This term, we are also offering courses as a ‘Fast-track’ over four and five weeks, and early evening classes.
It covers academic and non-academic areas and will focus mainly on style, punctuation, grammatical accuracy, organisation and how to paraphrase and summarise effectively.
It will run at Crewe and All Saints campuses during each term and the summer. There is no formal assessment. However, students will do exercises in writing during the weekly face-to-face sessions and for homework (optional), and will be provided with plenty of feedback on their writing as the course progresses.
We welcome requests to schedule specific courses at a time when your students are free.
Students who complete 80% or more of their Writing Project classes receive a certificate.
The Writing project is part of a wide ranging set of services offered by the Learner Development Service. We also offer an extensive programme of study skills workshops covering a wide range of topics. Please encourage your students to attend the different available workshops.
