Course description

The course aims at forming skills of written and oral communication within scholarly/academic community as well in business activities. Students will learn how to efficiently use e-mail services and videoconferencing. The main attention, however, will be paid to the standards of academic writing, which cover style and structure of scientific papers, appropriate citing, and styling of figures and tables. Students will also learn tips of an oral and multimedia scholarly presentation and the discussion. Business component of the course will cover such topics as preparation of a CV and a motivation letter, as well as some skills of face-to-face interview / negotiations.

The course is project-based – the students will use their individual master study material and personal examples for practice.
