The design of the BAWE corpus of successful university student writing reflects our assumption that it is worth investigating register variation across levels of study and academic disciplinary groups. The final corpus includes over 6.5 million words from 2,761 successful assignments written by 812 students at four British universities. This paper explores whether evidence of variation across disciplinary groups and years (levels) of study can be found from multidimensional analysis of grammatical features.
