# Get answers quickly to all your academic writing questions

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 (opens new window).

# Improve your focus on your dissertation writing

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.
