Academic Writing and Study Skills

We provide support on topics including writing style and structure, presentations, time management, and more.

ASK do not offer a proofreading service but we are happy to discuss your work.

ASK Appointments

You can make an appointment to see an adviser if you have any questions about your writing or study skills. All appointments take place in the ASK 1-2-1 room (Bann 019b) on the Ground Floor of the Library.

During the Autumn Term, appointments will be available from 25th September 2017 - 15th December 2017, at the following times:

  • Mondays and Thursdays 10am - 7pm
  • Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays 10am - 5pm

You can book an appointment with a student adviser by clicking this link.

It's helpful to bring your work or any feedback you have been given. If you have problems making an appointment or would like an appointment outside of term-time please email us at ask@brunel.ac.uk

Written advice on writing style

Alternatively you may wish to send us a writing sample so we can provide feedback on style and structure of your writing. Please note that this is not a proofreading service but a way of helping you improve your writing.

Only one student writing sample is allowed per term, so if you need further help please make an appointment to see an adviser.
