Student Support

Academic Writing Service

The Academic Writing Service (AWS) is part of the Library and Learning Services at CU Coventry and is dedicated to guiding and assisting you with writing and English language through workshops and 1-2-1 appointments. This can be whether you are finding it difficult at the beginning of your course or want to develop and improve to achieve the grades you want in years two and three. 

In the two years since it started, the AWS has been embraced by CU Coventry students and staff and has continually grown in popularity, developing close working relationships with students throughout their time studying at CUC. This is because AWS tutors are experienced in this field and are trusted by students. It is also because the service is student focused, meaning that students are listened to and their needs are assessed and responded to by tutors. 

The AWS can help you in a number of ways. These include: 

  • Analysing and understanding assignments
  • Improving critical thinking and writing
  • Writing in an academic style
  • Organising and structuring assignments
  • Referencing and citing sources

Our Academic Writing Service Tutors

Daniel has over seven years of experience of teaching English in the UK, China and Spain and has been an AWS tutor for two years. 

Shivani has over three years of experience teaching English in the UK. Her research interests include politics and language as well as academic writing. She has been an AWS tutor for one year. 


If you book a 30 minute 1-2-1 appointment with the AWS, you are asked to bring along your assignment and your assignment brief and an idea of what you want to discuss. The last point is really important as it will be the focus of the appointment. The AWS have two main rules that students and staff should remember: tutors will not proof read or ‘fix’ assignments.

To contact the AWS, either to book an appointment or ask a question, you can email them at learningservices.cuc@coventry.ac.uk or phone them at 024 7765 9942/4927.
