Academic Writing Support for UT students

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 can teach you strategies for improving your writing and guide you through useful print and digital resources.

Come to our weekly drop-in hours to speak one-on-one with a writing tutor about your text. No need to make an appointment! Support is available in English and Dutch.

  • Writing Encouragement Group

    Keep on track with your writing assignments by attending weekly lunchtime meetings with other student writers and a UT Writing Centre teacher. Set goals, write together, and review progress.


    • Set goals for the session
    • Spend some time working on these goals
    • Review progress and set goals for the rest of the week

    This free group is ideal for students who struggle to maintain motivation when writing, experience writer’s block, or generally find writing assignments difficult.
