Studying at the University of Lincoln? We can help you achieve your potential by improving your writing skills.

Writing Development

How we can help you

All University of Lincoln students can use Writing Development. Currently, we are offering all our help remotely.

For one-to-one help, please book an appointment 

  • Go to the blue "make an appointment" button under the photo on this page
  • We will email you to let you know which of the Writing Development team you will be seeing
  • Your appointment will be virtual, using either MS Teams or Blackboard Collaborate
  • We can help at any stage of the writing process, so you don't need to have a finished draft
  • For further information, please see "how we can help you" and our "terms and conditions" below.


Our webinars are open to all University of Lincoln students



We can help you with:
  • Understanding and planning your assignment
  • Assignment structure and paragraph structure
  • Academic argument and critical thinking
  • Introductions and conclusions
  • Strategies for editing and proof-reading
  • Understanding your feedback
  • Revision and exam techniques
You can help by:
  • Using a grammar checker and spelling checker (such as MS Word's or Grammarly's) before you ask us to look at your work. We can't check your spelling and grammar for you.
What we don't do:
  • We can't edit or proof-read your work for you.
  • We can't check to see if you have met the learning outcomes of your assignment, as this is something you have to do for yourself.
  • We can't help with the subject content of your assignment.
  • We can't help with finding information or referencing, instead you should contact your Academic Subject Librarian.

Terms and conditions

How many tutorials you can book

We aim to help our students become independent, self-reliant learners. We hope you will reflect on what you learn during our tutorials and apply it to subsequent assignments.  For this reason, and subject to availability, you can make a maximum of six appointments with us per academic year. Subject to availability, you can make a maximum of one appointment per week.  You can only book one appointment a time. 

If you can't attend a booked tutorial

If you can't attend an appointment you have booked, you must cancel it. Please cancel at least 24 hours in advance, as this may give other students the opportunity to book. If you do not attend two tutorials in a term, without cancelling them in good time (24 hours in advance), you will not be able to book further appointments for 3 weeks.
