How the Writing Centre works

  • Sign in

    Every two hours, at 10am, 12pm and 2pm, you can sign in to see a Writing Mentor. For example, if you arrive at 10am, you can sign in to see a Writing Mentor at 10 or 10:30 or 11 or 11:30. For another example, if you arrive at 2pm, you can sign in to see a Writing Mentor at 2 or 2:30 or 3 or 3:30.

    We will continue to allow students to sign in until all the time slots are filled. That means, if you arrive at the Writing Centre at 10:30 or 11, you may still be able to claim a slot if they haven't already been filled. If there are more people than slots available, we will prioritise first year undergraduate students. Whether or not you claim a half an hour time slot, do ask one of your Student Mentors for their advice on academic writing and study skills.

  • Get ready

    When it's your turn, get out all relevant materials: assignment instructions, drafts, lecture notes etc. 

  • Develop your skills

    Your Writing Mentor will spend 30 minutes with you, helping you to gain the skills and confidence to improve your writing.
