Writing tutorials for your dissertations and projects

Go to CeDAS Online to book a 30 minute session with an academic writing specialist. Our staff can advise you on an array of topics such as academic style, how to quote correctly, how to structure your work and organise your ideas as well as advising on general grammar, punctuation and word choice queries.

To get maximum benefit from the tutorial, please submit a sample of your writing or a draft of your current assignment (up to 2,000 words) at least 24 hours in advance of the session. It is VITAL that you also include details of the assignment task (e.g. the title, question or instructions you have received from your lecturers).
