Effective Academic Writing: Individual Tutorials

Course Description

The Doctoral Skills Development Programme is host to UCL's Royal Literary Fund Fellows, professional authors who offer free one-to-one tutorials during term time in effective academic writing to all students at UCL.

The principal aim of the Fellows' work is to foster good writing practice across all disciplines, helping students to write clearly and effectively.

Your time with a Fellow will focus on an early draft of your writing or just a section of that draft, or notes on a title. During the course of the consultation you can seek the Fellow's advice on structuring and planning your research and writing, writing clearly and effectively, and any other concerns you may have about your written work. The Fellows do not advise on content or teach English as a second language. Samples of written work may be dropped off at the Fellows' office or emailed ahead of a booked session.

You can find details of the current Fellows below. You need to email them directly to book an appointment. Please be aware that you can only book tutorials with one Fellow.

Please select the Fellow below for further information and details of how to book your individual tutorial:
