"We offer support in all subjects—from academic assignments to dissertations—for both undergraduate and graduate students. We meet with you individually to discuss your work and we also offer events and seminars. We are not a proofreading or editing service—our goal is to teach you to write independently."
This guide will help you with all the types of writing you need to do at university by looking at the following five areas:
* the steps in the writing process; * the types of writing that take place in a university; * the writing expectations for different disciplines; * adapting to university academic expectations; * specific support for English Language Leamers, Graduate Students, and Faculty and TAs.
