Description Students will work autonomously on the production of a short newspaper, magazine or other publication (approved by the supervisor) in the target language. The group will meet once every two weeks for tutorials to concentrate on their writing skills and practise their spoken language. Students are expected to see their supervisor regularly for individual help. Students can select a theme / topic for their publication and thus develop and explore different styles of writing and manipulate vocabulary relevant to their specialisation. It will also allow students to gain extensive knowledge of their specific area of interest. Furthermore, this module aims at enhancing students’ ability to express themselves in the target language through viva to be delivered at the end of the course.
