Extended Project Qualification: A Skills & Insight University Workshop – Critiquing & Improving Your Academic Writing With Dr Victoria Yuskaitis From University of Southampton

16th November 2021 @ 12:45 - 13:45



In this session, Dr Victoria Yuskaitis from University of Southampton will lead a skills and insight workshop for students carrying out an EPQ. The session will help students to critique and improve their academic writing with a live, collaborative exercise to further develop a draft.

Victoria will address the following three areas:
  • Differences between descriptive and critical writing
  • Critically evaluating sources
  • Structure of an academic essay


Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.


Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) carrying out, or about to embark upon, an EPQ.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider questions they have about academic writing and, more specifically, the challenges they are facing relating to the EPQ.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via a microphone and/or typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.

Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. If you would like to take part in this event, please register your interest using the link to the registration form below:
