The PhD Writing Issues and Challenges course (2 ECTS credits) provided by the Center for Academic Writing of CEU aims to clarify some of the key distinguishing features and challenges of doctoral - level research writing, both in regard to content and process. The course will include a prospectus writing workshop and will be tailored towards department specific writing tasks.
By the end of the course students should

deal with them
• Understand departmental level writing requirements for the doctoral program and be aware
of good practice
• Be able to critically review peer students' draft proposals and prospectuses and respond to
critical review of their own
The course is run on a pass/fail basis. To achieve a pass grade, students must attend course seminars and workshops and complete required readings (for seminars) and required writing and peer review tasks (for workshops).
