Academic Writing Service

The Academic Writing Service aims to contribute to students across CUC fulfilling their potential as learners, by enabling them to successfully write and study independently whilst at university. This will be achieved through advising and guiding students on the important aspects of academic writing and skills, such as planning and structuring essays and reports, improving critical thinking and avoiding plagiarism by referencing correctly.

Students can access the Academic Writing Service via open access drop-in sessions, bookable one-to-ones and Moodle, whilst we will have some sessions in subject tutorials, and even occasional workshops. To book a one-to-one or find out when a drop-in session is scheduled, students can contact the Customer Service Desk or email the service direct on:
