WHAT IS AWE?

AWE is a complete course in academic writing, designed to help you improve your academic writing for a variety of purposes. AWE will help you to compose:

  • class essays
  • exam essays
  • experimental reports
  • scientific essays
  • dissertations
  • academic articles

AWE includes:

  • An in-depth self-learning course covering the entire creative process of academic writing
  • Interactive exercises that help you learn
  • Checklists for reviewing your critical thinking, your arguments and your essay as a whole
  • An extensive glossary of important terms

AWE will not write or review your essays for you. AWE does, however, provide easy tips for avoiding plagiarism, conducting research, thinking critically, making strong arguments and presenting your work well.

REAL ENGLISH, REAL EXAMPLES

AWE shows you real examples from real academic writing. We show you samples of text from the ICE-GB Corpus, a linguistic database compiled and analysed at UCL and used by researchers around the world.

INTERACTIVE EXERCISES

AWE includes ten sets of exercises on a variety of topics, and many more tasks for you to try to on your own. Exercises include real examples of real academic English, and because it's an app, AWE refreshes its exercises so that you can continue to practice each topic.

LEARN FROM EXPERTS

AWE is written by a team of linguists at University College London (UCL), independently ranked as one of the world's best universities. The approach in the app is based on recent research and best practice in the field, as well as years of experience in writing and teaching.

WHO IS AWE FOR?

AWE is for undergraduates, postgraduates, professional academics and secondary school students preparing for university – in short, anyone who does academic writing. It is for native and non-native speakers of English.
