Assignment writing

If you want to discuss a written assignment, you should first:

  • clarify what is required with your lecturer/tutor if you don’t understand the task
  • ensure you bring the assignment question/guidelines and a hard copy of your work
  • identify the main areas you are having problems with
  • check out the Learning Lab's essay or report writing online resources to see if you are on track.

The language and learning advisor is able to:

  • help you understand the task
  • help you to plan how you will approach the assignment
  • give feedback on your writing*
  • discuss strategies for improvement and refer you to resources
  • assist you to develop effective and critical reading skills
  • discuss structural aspects of your writing with you.

*Please note: we are unable to proofread your assignment or thesis.
