News flash:
The AWC is now closed for virtual consultations. We are open for general queries until the end of May. Contact us at AcademicWritingCentre@nuigalway.ie. We will be back in late summer to provide support to students who need to re-sit exams and postgraduate students. Many thanks to all the students who attended our vitual sessions or received feedback by email this year.  
What we do - image

 

We provide virtual one-on-one tutorials and email consultations on essay writing. These are free and available to everyone, regardless of level of experience or grade average. 

We also support student writing through workshops, modules, and competitions. 

We offer help in the following areas: 

  • Brainstorming your essay topic and outline
  • Structuring an argument
  • Developing your thesis statement
  • Improving sentence structure and punctuation
  • Avoiding plagiarism
  • Using secondary sources
  • Editing and proofreading techniques

What we don't do:

  • We do not do the work for you, but support you in becoming a better writer. 
  • We do not work as proofreaders, but we can teach you to proofread your work.
  • We do not assess essays or comment on the grades they received.
  • We do not judge anyone for any writing issues.
