There is a need for examples and tools to support bioscience students in the development of their scientific writing that recognise that there is no 'one size fits all approach'. 'Writing to learn' as a way to integrate writing with the subject can enable students to improve their outcomes and attainment, a clear benefit to the students and university as a whole. This approach and the strategies described in this chapter seek to support readers in supporting bioscience student writing development through innovations and activities that increase attainment for all and not just those referred for remedial provision.
