Useful as a course book or as a self-study guide, this text is essential reading for all international students studying for a British qualification at university. It provides a clear guide to the areas that need to be considered in order to research and produce a well presented and cohesive piece of academic writing. The steps outlined, and the language used, are accessible, and graded to a level that steadily introduces new writing concepts to students studying for a degree in a second or additional language. In particular it covers planning, conducting research, critical thinking, structuring an essay, use of sources and referencing, and feedback and revision.


Andrew Graham is the award leader for an International Foundation Programme (IFP) run in collaboration between Chengdu University of Technology, China and Oxford Brookes University, UK. Andrew has worked closely with ESL students for over 8 years, teaching a range of modules that centre around academic research and writing, group-work, presentation skills, and critical thinking. He has worked on syllabus design across these modules and created a variety of resources that are appropriate for international students studying for a British qualification.
