FREE small-group/one-to-one writing clinics for students to develop their writing for assignments.
- Is academic writing a mystery?
- Not sure what your assessors are looking for ... and what the assignment requires?
- Are your grades not matching your expectations?
- Want to gain confidence in academic writing and thinking?
- Would you like guidance from academics skilled in writing development and writing mentors trained to develop your writing?
Come along to the Writing Clinic - no appointment necessary.
Sessions can cover all aspects of effective assignment-writing: effective information-gathering, critical questioning, structuring, integrating evidence, summarising the ideas of others, building our argument and ‘being academic’.
IMPORTANT: please bring along your assignment instructions and your draft work/ideas. You may also wish to bring in source evidence you think may be useful to incorporate into your writing.

Ways to request a Masterclass:
Occasionally we are able to run Maths and Stats one-to-one study advice sessions. Again, please check the Calendar to see what is happening and where. When they run, these advice sessions are drop-in: there's no need to book.
We have been inviting Faculties to send us information of study support opportunities for their students and will advertise these events here.
Students should also check with their course/module leader (and Undergraduates their PAA or PAT) to find out what provision is available in their Faculty for learning & writing development support, study advice, etc..
Our Preparing For Study programmes run before the start of the year – and may be requested by Faculties as Enhancement Week activities. When they run they are open to all new and returning students at London Met. Check our Calendar!
A typical course will include sessions on:
- Successful approaches to learning and studying
- Memory, learning styles, revision and exam techniques
- Active notemaking – from lectures, seminars and reading
- Analytical and critical thinking
- Creative ways to become a successful student
- Effective presentations, positive thinking and surviving group work
- Academic writing: what, why, how.
