Do you have a busy schedule but want to improve your academic English writing skills? Kickstart School’s online academic writing course develops your academic writing skills through a series of exercises and assignments completed via KickstartNet, our online learning platform. All correspondence is online, although an initial meeting with the teacher (face-to-face, by phone or via Skype) is required to assess your level and clarify your goals for the course.
