Policies, Forms and Guidelines
Study Skills and Academic Writing

The IoA Academic Writing team is available to help UCL Institute of Archaeology students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, improve their academic writing skills in one-to-one sessions and various writing workshops. Available help covers everything from basic issues of essay organisation, citation and how to avoid plagiarism to argumentation and style. Whether the student is looking to improve upon what skills they already have; is unfamiliar with the writing styles and conventions, or is struggling to convey their responses - the Academic Writing team can help. Help is also available for non-native speakers of English. For further information on workshops and how to book tutorials, students should go to the dedicated IoA Academic Writing Moodle site.  

For questions, please contact the Academic Writing Tutor, Dr Julia Shaw.
