Throughout the course, participants undertake two pieces of independent work, be it essays or problem sheets, meticulously evaluated in personalised 1:1 or 2:1 tutorials. These sessions not only provide valuable feedback but also encourage students to explore diverse perspectives within their writing. Upon completion, participants receive a certificate and a personalised letter of recommendation from their tutor.
