In the system of training a modern competent graduate of a Russian university, one of the ways to improve it is to include in the content of his training discipline “Academic writing”. At the same time, in the context of the principles of succession and continuity, it is necessary to deepen and expand the content of the discipline, increase the number of practical classes, the result of which will be the qualitative writing of scientific texts by students, and ultimately, the scientifically competent writing of the text of the research performed by them. On the basis of the principles of succession and continuity, the stages of development of academic writing at the successive school and university educational levels are presented. It is shown that the training in the course “Academic writing” will form the academic communicative written and verbal competence, that is, to form knowledge about how to write a term paper, graduate work and other types of written texts; knowledge of various methods of working with text information; the ability to write such works, the ability to make a scientific report publicly; possession of the skills of structuring the text and building logical relationships. In general, the analysis has helped to identify the need and necessity of inclusion in school and university curricula of the subject “Academic writing”; the need for the creation of training programs, the continuity of the textbooks, “Academic writing” for general and higher education; the obligation of identification or of training, retraining in the system of training specialists for the implementation of the teaching of this school subject, which will allow to improve the system of training modern competent professionals.
