For Graduate Students

Graduate students come to the Writing Centre for many reasons. Some wish to refresh themselves on mechanics and elements of style. Others seek guidance and feedback on papers and articles they are preparing. Still others want help with portions of their theses. The Centre also assists graduate students with paper/project proposals, application letters, personal statements, and entrance-exam preparation.

Note: If you need help with a group paper, please let us know in advance, as we will require written permission from all the authors involved.

Our graduate student services are in great demand, and we strongly recommend that graduate students make appointments as well in advance as possible. Due to the finite number of graduate appointments available, we can seldom accommodate last-minute requests. Please note that we give only one appointment per week to graduate-level students, and that we do NOT provide an editing service - we strive to help you develop strategies with which you yourself can improve your writing.
