Description

This course was mainly designed for undergraduate students on arts / social sciences / humanities degrees who will write about race / racial identity in their academic studies. In our experience, many students from "BME" backgrounds have great ideas, but struggle to express these in academic writing at university. This course was designed primarily to address their needs, but it can be beneficial to any university student who needs some support on this often overlooked and rarely discussed topic. 

This course is not about "race" per se - rather, it aims to give students the tips and confidence needed to write about related topics well. You should expect the course to guide you through the process of completing a written academic assignment and you should be somewhat familiar with items mentioned in the course such as your module handbook (issued by your university department).

The course is about academic success, but it has a personal development approach - as we believe all students can achieve their goals by adopting the right strategies and taking the necessary action.

You should take this course if you are studying any degree programme where you may need to write assignments related to race / racial identity, from Business to Cultural Studies to Music Performance to History. All interested students are welcome to try the course. We hope you find it useful.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is aimed at "BME" students who are new to writing about race/racial identity in university assignments. It is introductory and ideal for students who have great ideas but are apprehensive about writing about these issues.
  • This course is not about race/ethnicity per se, rather, tips for writing about these at undergraduate level.

Director of First Class Coaching

We are committed to creating a world where everyone realises their potential to learn, achieve and become successful. We believe in the transformative power of education and the fulfilment (and fun) that comes from making informed choices and taking aligned action toward academic goals. 

Unlike colleges and universities which lack the time and resource to provide this specialist service and mostly offer generic, remedial provision, First Class Coaching is committed to helping individuals access their own methods and strategies in order to get the results they want.

We provide academic coaching because it is needed by many learners who are underserved by institutions they may attend. Rather than “tutoring” or “study support”, we focus on establishing a winning relationship with clients in order to help them meet specific academic needs. Working with an academic coach, students examine their progress, find solutions, set goals and take action leading to success. Coaching focuses on personal development, goal-setting, motivation, study skills, employability, resource connection, and campus engagement.

We act as a supportive third party helping students get the best out of their learning environment in a range of scenarios. Most importantly, we offer what universities and colleges simply do not – high quality academic coaching with personal empowerment and success in mind.
