For academic staff:

  • Academic Writing in English

    Academic Writing Course

    Information and how to apply to Academic Writing Course.

    Discuss and develop your academic writing, and improve your ability to produce written academic texts in English, on this 6-ECTS-credit course.

    English Grammar for Researchers

    Not offered for the time being.

    What kind of grammar do we need when we write academic texts, communicating with other researchers in our field? The kinds of sentence we write in theses or articles are not necessarily the same kinds of sentence we speak aloud in conversation, or write in emails, blogs or newspaper articles. This course explores the particular kinds of grammar and sentence structures common in English academic prose, and aims to increase participants' ability with the more complex sentence structures academics often use in English.

    Reading to Write: Preparing to Publish

    Not offered for the time being.

    This workshop focuses on developing reading strategies and rhetorical and linguistic awareness that will help you develop your own writing. It is particularly suitable for PhD candidates at an early stage of their PhD and researchers with limited publication experience.

    Writing the Introduction to Article-based Dissertations: Kappe-workshop

    Workshop in November. Information and registration (

    Are you a PhD-candidate writing an article-based dissertation? In many fields you are required to write a "kappe" as a part of you dissertation, a genre that many candidates find challenging. Join this three-session workshop to discuss strategies and approaches to writing your "kappe"!

    Beyond IMRAD

    Not offered for the time being.

    While many academic articles use the IMRAD (Introduction, Method, Results and Discussion) structure, not all do. Some are more essayistic, some more argumentative, some more philosophical. These kinds of article can be difficult to write, in part because there is no clear template. The Beyond IMRAD course gives participants the tools they need to publish articles in these demanding genres.

  • Mentoring: One-on-one sessions

    Mentoring sessions provide one-to-one support tailored to each participant's needs. The sessions are designed to increase participants’ ability and confidence with academic writing in English or with presenting in English in an academic context.


    • Increased confidence in writing English-language academic texts or presenting in English in an academic context
    • Improved ability to produce written academic texts or to present in English in an academic context
    • Increased ability in setting and attaining writing goals or in planning for a presentation


    Mentoring sessions provide one-to-one support tailored to each participant’s needs. You may request sessions to work on either 

    • an academic text; or 
    • a conference presentation, dissertation defense or other types of presentations in academic contexts

    Each participant will meet with a mentor to discuss the development of their work, and the mentor will provide insight, feedback and guidance about rhetoric, structure, organization, argument and so on.


    Times and meeting places will be mutually agreed by each mentor and participant. In most cases, you can expect to meet with your mentor for up to three sessions to work on the same text or presentation.  


    To get the most out of mentoring sessions, you should be

    • reasonably fluent in written and oral English;
    • prepared to work on various tasks, readings, and your own writing and presentation skills between meetings.

    Mentoring sessions are open to staff and PhD candidates at OsloMet. Availability of the sessions is limited.

    Please note: this is not a copyediting, proof-reading or pronunciation-correction service: the aim is to produce better writers and presenters, not just better writing or presentations.
