Improve your ability in a fundamental part of research: a literature review

Many students are required to write a critical review of current academic literature in their area of interest - researchers, postgraduates and undergraduates. Developing a great critical review is vital, but not always taught.

In this course, you will be guided through this complex process step-by-step, seeing examples, finding information and developing useful questions that will help you plan, draft and refine a critical discussion of what is and is not yet known about your topic.

This course has been created for those pursuing research, at PhD level or not – anyone who wants to improve their ability to write about academic literature for research purposes.
