  • Workshops on common writing topics
  • ‘Single Question’ drop-in sessions
  • Academic Writing Add+vantage modules
  • Self-study writing guidance
  • 3rd Year dissertation active writing sessions
  • Dissertation and final year project writing support

# Single question drop-in sessions

CAW’s popular ‘Single Question Drop-in Service’ has been expanded this year. Academic Writing Tutors are on hand to respond to a wide range of students’ writing queries, and can be found at a designated CAW table in the Library and in each Faculty on a rotating basis every week, as well as CAW’s reception area. The full schedule is available on CAW’s student portal pages and students can attend any of the sessions listed.

# 3rd year dissertation active writing session

Tip:

Final year undergraduates who need a space to write their dissertations or projects can book a 3rd Year Dissertation Active Writing Session. These sessions typically take place in CAW’s Academic Writing Studio, with an Academic Writing Tutor available to provide brief on-the-spot dissertation/project writing advice.

# Academic Writing Month

In celebration of Academic Writing Month (AcWrMo) in November, CAW has organised a full menu of writing development activities and workshops, including CAW’s Academic Writing Themed Week for PGRs.
