To succeed in your studies it is vital for you to be able to both read well, and use that reading in your writing.


This workshop looks at how you can engage with difficult academic texts and use them in your own writing.  As well as discussing the practicalities of how you paraphrase, summarise and quote from sources, we will also think about how to engage critically with texts, and how reading relates to writing.

We have workshops running throughout term. Have a browse through the sessions that are available this term on our website.

Please note that places on our workshops are limited so booking in advance is essential. To book a place on a workshop email tdcse@essex.ac.uk or visit the Talent Development Centre office in the Forum Building TF.2.19.

You can also book a 1:1 appointment with an advisor to talk over anything in your studies that you need help with.
