Academic writing support
Well-written assignments are likely to get good grades. If you want advice on how to improve your use of academic English in your essay or presentation, you can reserve time with a Language Centre tutor to look at your draft assignment or answer questions.
Booking support time
To reserve support time, select a free slot on our booking system. The first time you book, you’ll need to fill in some personal details, including your student number. After that, you can simply click on an available slot. You can book up to two sessions per week - at busy times, additional bookings may be cancelled.
Once you have booked a slot you will receive an email confirming your booking, followed by an email from the Language Centre tutor explaining
- where to send your draft/questions
- how feedback will be provided
Please note that this booking service is for semester time only. For academic writing support at other times of the year, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The tutor may give you feedback on your writing via email, or they may suggest an online meeting if they feel this will be the best way to address your needs. Language Centre tutors can help you restructure your sentences and paragraphs to make them more effective and advise you on your use of academic vocabulary, grammar, style, referencing and more. They can't proofread your work, though.
