Mr Mark Unwin

Senior Lecturer in English for Academic Purposes

I am a Senior Lecturer in EAP and Academic Skills, working within ACE (School of Architecture, Computing and Engineering), RDSBL (Royal Docklands School of Business and Law) and the School of Education and Communities. I work with a broad range of students, from foundation year to post-graduate, studying subjects as diverse as Civil Engineering to Criminology, helping them to communicate with criticality, clarity and confidence.

He is interested in creativity and clarity and effectiveness of communication- academic, professional or expressive- in written, spoken or graphic form. Mark joined UEL in September 2007 and has led and delivered many courses in Academic Writing and Research Skills.
