A qualification paper (diploma) is a piece of academic writing that provides analysis, interpretation, and argument based on in-depth independent research.

This course teaches you how to write some academic essays,  improves your writing skills but also your skills in scholarly research. 

Any piece of academic writing requires you to demonstrate a strong knowledge of your topic, engage with a variety of sources, and make an original contribution to the debate.

Reading and Writing (Research Writing) as a guide takes you through the entire writing process, from understanding your assignment to proofreading your final draft.
