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.

There are three ways to get individual help:

  • 1. Come to the Drop-in hours
    Drop-In Hours

    The UT Writing Centre is pleased to offer face-to-face writing support in Skills Lab 3 on the second floor of the Vrijhof during select drop-in hours. We will continue to offer remote drop-in hours too. If you have questions, please contact us at writingcentre@utwente.nl.

    We offer online writing support for BSc and MSc students. Come to our weekly drop-in hours in BigBlueButton (BBB) on Canvas to speak one-one-one with a writing tutor about your text. Students are allowed one 45-minute session per day but quick questions are also welcome. 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 you must register for the course at least 30 minutes before the start of drop-in hours to receive an invitation to the conference. Registration for UT Writing Centre drop-in hours is only open to bachelor and master students. Information about writing support for PhDs can be found here.


    Opening hours are subject to change throughout the academic year.
