Writing Tutor

The departmental Writing Tutor is available to help UCL Anthropology students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, improve their writing skills. This includes everything from basic issues of essay organisation, citation and how to avoid plagiarism as well as the more complicated aspects such as argumentation and style. Whether the student simply has not been taught the skill set required for academic writing; is looking to improve upon what skills they already have; or has changed disciplines and is unfamiliar with the writing styles and conventions normative to the social sciences-the Writing Tutor can help in that process.

For further information, students should check out the Writing Tutor's Moodle site.

Other Resources:

UCL has a number of resources available to help students improve their academic skills set. The following are a few of these that may be worth taking a look at.

The UCL Language Centre offers full and part-time English for Academic Purposes and foundation courses for international students as well as foreign language courses.

The Graduate School is host to UCL's Royal Literary Fund Fellows, professional authors who offer one-to-one tutorials in effective academic writing, free of charge, to all students at UCL.

    Turing Scheme funding for UG and PGT fieldwork
    PGR Student Conference Fund

    Each year all UCL Departments are required to set aside funds to help students attend conferences and workshops.

The fund is intended to support students who are self-funded or who are not funded for conferences.
