English Language Support: Adopting an impersonal style

About this workshop

How will this workshop help me?

Generally speaking, most academic writing is impersonal and it is not considered appropriate to use the word ‘I’. At the same time, however, your tutors are looking for your own critical awareness of your source texts and your ability to evaluate the ideas of others. This workshop is a grammar-based approach to producing written texts which present academic information in a non-personal way.
