Dissertation Tutorials

Dissertation tutorials for August are available to book.

Until  31st  August 2018, we will be running one hour, one-to-one dissertation tutorials. These are language based so you will need to bring in some of your writing. This could be a whole section of your dissertation or just a few pages. It is important that you have worked on it in some depth beforehand so the tutor can identify particular problems and help you improve.

We cannot comment on content, however – these questions are for your Supervisor.

What we can help with:

  • Language and grammar
  • Style, tone and form
  • Structure
  • Clarity, meaning and expression
  • Academic conventions

Who?
These are only for Dissertation students who are writing their final major assignments.
