Request a seminar
If you would like to learn more about a particular academic skill or assignment type, please email us with your request. This will work best if you already know of several students who also wish to learn more about this skill or assignment type.
Waite and Roseworthy students
We are currently planning on having Waite and Roseworthy-specific appointments - watch this space! In the meantime, please do not hesitate to book an online or North Terrace-based appointment - we look forward to seeing you!
Faculty, school and course support
Postgraduate research students
Writing Centre appointments are currently for undergraduate students and postgraduate coursework students. If you are a HDR student, please seek support from the Adelaide Graduate Centre.
You are welcome to send us an email query at email@example.com with any broader questions you may have regarding academic writing. Otherwise, we will work on developing workshops or other HDR-oriented activities and initiatives in the future.
For those of you taking the LANTITE test, the Writing Centre can support you in the Literacy component of this test. Please email or make an appointment with us to discuss the help you need.
