The librarians offer free, one-to-one tutorials to students to address any aspect of your academic writing. The service aims to help students to become confident and effective writers. By improving your writing skills, we hope that you will be equipped to achieve your full academic potential.

Academic Writing

If you would like coaching on how to write in an academic style, the librarians offer a confidential one-to-one tutorial service to students to address any aspect of academic writing. 

You should bring a written assignment to the tutorial, one that has been corrected or one still in progress. Come to the tutorial with lots of questions and a readiness to engage with the writing process.  All visits are confidential. The Writing Service is not a proofreading or editing service. Rather, the librarian will teach you how to proofread and will work collaboratively with you and discuss any concerns you have about your writing.


This service is not suitable for you if your assignment is due in less than two hours. You will need sufficient time to review your assignment, not just make a few quick changes and print it.  Use of the academic writing service will not ensure a higher grade for your assignment as the service will assist you with structuring your writing and adhering to the formalities of academic writing, rather than the knowledge you are demonstrating. 

 

One-to-one tutorials last for 50 minutes.  Students are required to book a tutorial in advance. This can be done by calling to the library, by email or by phone.
