Institute of Education


Academic Writing Centre

For Postgraduate Students in Education Studies

Director: Dr Lesley Gourlay

Our centre provides support for UCL Institute of Education (IOE) students in the form of workshops and short courses (face to face and online), one-to-one tutorials (face to face, Skype or phone), online discussion forums, and online resources. Our sessions and resources are specifically designed to support postgraduate Academic Writing in Education studies.

We support both home and international students, and also offer pre-sessional support to students who have yet to commence their study at the Institute.

" The Academic Writing Centre made a huge difference to my experience studying at the IOE. Their classes really helped me develop my writing and I improved my ability to understand and critique my reading. I feel like I got more out of it as a result. They were one of the best parts of my whole MA. – Nina, Early Years Education MA
