Writing Development Centre

Our Writing Development Centre (WDC) and Academic Skills Development (ASD) teams are here to help you get the right support for your academic and study skills needs. Support and guidance is available on the full range of academic study; from interpreting an essay question and managing your time to reading critically, planning structure, revising for exams, or strategies for editing a final draft.

If you book a one to one appointment with the friendly Writing Development Centre tutors or sign up for one of their great classes, this is usually where you'll need to come for your session. 

If you've got a drop in appointment with the lovely Academic Skills Development team, you'll need to head over to the Marjorie Robinson Library Rooms instead.

Take a look at our Explore More links to find out about the help and sessions available.
