UCD Writing Centre
UCD Writing Centre operates as a resource for all undergraduate and postgraduate students interested in developing their academic writing skills. Most assessments at third-level are submitted in written format (essay, journal, report, exam) so writing skills are central to your learning. UCD Writing Centre is there to help you to make sure that you communicate your knowledge in the most effective way you can.
Reasons to use the centre
- If you want one-to-one help with an experienced tutor to address any issues related to the writing process
- If you lack confidence about what kind of writing is expected in an academic essay
- If you’re making the transition to university from a non-traditional route and have not been writing for a while and need some refresher one-to-one work
- If you feel you’re stuck in a particular grade bracket and you’re being told that the ideas are good but you’re not communicating them as well as you could
- If you know you can write well, but you have recurring problems with a specific aspect of writing, such as structure or effective introductions and conclusions, integrating secondary material into your work, paragraph transitions or some particular grammar problem
