Academic Writing Skills Advice

There are several easy ways you can access our free service to improve your writing skills:

  • During term time Instant Advice is available every weekday, from 10:00 – 16:00.
  • No need to book, simply come along to Academic Skills Advice and you will be seen in order of arrival.
  • Check out our range of online tips, guides and activities.
  • Make use of unlimited access to our skills workshops and 24/7 writing skills workshops available in Blackboard.
  • Attend a writing clinic, where you can actively work on your assignment writing with an adviser on hand to offer guidance.
  • Bring along work which has already been marked for instant, informed action planning to improve your marks for future assessments.
  • Bring along an electronic copy of a ‘live’ draft-in-progress for developmental writing skills advice and tips. These in-depth one-to-ones are limited to one per semester, per student and drafts must be less than 3,000 words. See our writing skills breakdown sheet example (PDF 275KB) for more information.
  • We also run a vast range of study skills workshops which can all be booked online, covering everything from time management to critical writing skills and everything in between!  You can find out more information and join the mailing list on the Unversity’s Student Workshop page. The resources used in our workshops are made available on our webpage after the workshop has been delivered.
