Target group

The workshop is for all faculty members at Aarhus University. If you have any interest in getting to know more about academic writing skills in English, please feel welcome to participate.

The workshop will take place over five sessions of three hours.


The focus will be on the qualities of:

  • good academic writing

  • structure
  • argumentation
  • relevant grammatical issues

The workshop will further include:

  • instructor presentations

Why participate?

The course provides a valuable opportunity for you to improve your own research articles. Prior to the start of the workshop, you will be invited to submit a 4–5 page writing sample of an article you are currently working on (or have recently completed).

During the course, you will receive feedback on this writing sample on a topic-by-topic basis. In the final session, you will have the opportunity to discuss your English academic writing individually with the course instructor.


The course will be taught by Sarah Jennings. Sarah has a PhD from Warwick University (England) and, since 2011, has been helping AU staff and students with their English communication.

She has knowledge of the academic publishing world and works as an academic copyeditor for Language Services in the Faculty of Arts.
