Support for Academic Writing and Language

  • LET Writing Space at StudyHelp

Our Writing Space runs in S107 from 12pm-2pm Monday to Friday during term time.

You can join this space without booking.

Join the space, take a seat at a computer or bring your laptop, and work on your assignment alongside other students.

Student Learning Assistants and Academic Writing and Language specialists from the LET will be available in the room to answer queries and help you learn as you write.

  • Book One-to-One Appointments

These are 30-minute 1-1 appointments which you can book to gain advice or feedback on your assignments, language and communication, or learning strategies. Some appointments are on campus and others are online.

You can come at any stage of your studies to understand the assignment, understand what you have to do, gain feedback on what you have done, learn to work more effectively, and understand how to improve your work or communication skills.

Please use the below calendar assigned to your Faculty to book an appointment.

Please note:

  • We recommend appointments are held at least one week ahead of your assignment deadline. You will need time to respond to feedback and enhance your work.
  • You can only book one Academic Writing and Language tutorial in a given week.
  • Booking will open one week before the time advertised.
  • If you cannot see a time that fits your schedule, or you would like to arrange a group appointment with friends, please email us at LET@mdx.ac.uk. Please tell us what you would like help with and when you are free.
