Writing Centre

What is the Writing Centre?

As part of the Academic Success Centre our goal is to empower students to learn more effectively and efficiently, to earn higher grades, become more independent learners and persist throughout their studies and beyond. The Writing Centre is not an editing service, but rather works to help students become stronger and more confident writers.
