Article One: A thematic report on common academic writing issues faced by new international students in the UK

Introduction

Pursuing higher education in the United Kingdom is a dream for many international students. However, adapting to a new education system, especially in academic writing, can be challenging. This difficulty arises because many international students possess academic foundations distinct from those of the UK's higher education system. Furthermore, many students enrol directly in undergraduate programmes without receiving preparatory training or adjustment periods. This article explores the common academic writing issues faced by new international students in the UK and proposes solutions to address these challenges.
