Help With Academic Writing

The Open University Effective Use of English site is a good place to start if you want to improve your academic writing skills or to check whether you are using the 'tools' of writing (grammar, punctuation, etc.) correctly. If you want to talk to someone about writing skills make an appointment with the University's Writing Advisory Service, at 283 Glossop Rd (0114) 2221780. This service is targeted at home students (native English speakers as well as International ones). Remember that any improvements you can make now could help you achieve better results in exams and coursework throughout your University career.
