Course overview

The 1-to-1 Academic Writing Tutorials allow you and your tutor to discuss the most effective ways for you to improve as an academic writer. These tutorials give you the opportunity to ask specific questions and receive personalised feedback on a particular piece of written work, or to simply discuss recurring problems you have with your writing. 

Your tutor will be able to answer questions and offer feedback on the following aspects of academic writing: task achievement, organisation, source-use, citation, style, syntax and language. 

Leaners will normally submit a short piece of written work prior to their tutorial.
Your tutor may provide some written comments that they wish to discuss in greater detail during the tutorial. These comments will be available for you to view both during and following the tutorial.

Signing up for this tutorial-based ‘course’ entitles you to two 30-minute 1-to-1 Academic Writing Tutorials per term (Weeks 2-8), subject to availability. 

Tutorials are only offered to students and academic staff of the University. They are not available to non-academic staff, or to alumni or members of the general public.

3.    No refunds will be given for unused slots.
