Writing Support 

The UT Writing Centre is here to support BSc and MSc students with their writing.

We provide free one-on-one help with any writing task at any stage of the writing process. We are trained to help you identify and correct issues related to structure and language. We will teach you strategies for improving your writing and guide you through useful print and digital resources.

There are two ways to get individual help:

  • 1. Come to the Drop-in hours

    We offer online writing support for BSc and MSc students. Come to our weekly drop-in hours on Canvas Conferences to speak one-one-one with a writing tutor about your text. Students are allowed one 45-minute session per day. Support is available in English and Dutch.

    To join, self-enroll in the Canvas course here. Come on in! We are ready to help. Please note that registration for UT Writing Centre drop-in hours is only open for bachelor and master students. Writing support for PhDs can be found here.
