Writing Clinic

Do you want feedback on your assignment before you submit? Are you unsure about the structure of your essay? Do you struggle with referencing? Are you confused about how to approach a difficult topic?

If any of these issues seem familiar and you are looking for some advice, then please book a Skills Centre Writing Clinic. The Writing Clinics are one-to-one, thirty-minute appointments with our highly-skilled Tutors.

Before coming to the session, we ask that you prepare a draft of an assignment and bring it with you to your appointment. On arrival, your tutor will ask you why you have come to the Skills Centre. This is your opportunity to discuss the specific issues and concerns you have in relation to academic writing. Your tutor will go through your piece of work and address the key areas of concern in order to help redraft and refine your assignment. They will give you advice on structure and on how best to focus on the question being asked.

This personalised, detailed feedback will help you gain control of your writing and give you the tools to tackle future assignments with confidence.
