What to expect

At the Centre for Academic Writing & Rhetoric we can help you improve your communication skills, but you also need to work to achieve these goals. Together we can go far.

The Centre offers supervision in:

  • The writing process
  • The structure of texts
  • Language and scientific styles
  • Summarizing
  • Oral presentations
  • Study skills
  • References in language and scientific writing

Our services do not include:

  • Proofreading
  • Writing texts
  • Assessing or grading texts
  • Giving basic instruction in Swedish and English grammar
  • Helping with CVs and job applications

This is what YOU do: checklist

  1. Work thoroughly with your text before you come to the Centre
  2. Do your work in plenty of time before you come to us and plenty of time before submission
  3. Make an appointment with us
  4. Email your text and the assignment instructions at least 24 hours before the booked appointment

This is what WE do

We read about three pages of the text and determine what you need to do to improve your writing or your presentation and your language. Is there a problem with the structure? Is the text incoherent? Is the text difficult to read?

This is what we do TOGETHER

We sit down and go through what you need to work on in your writing or in your presentation, and specifically in the text in front of us. We will also advise you on websites and books on writing and language. We will possibly book a time for another meeting. Our conversation will help you gain awareness of what you need to do to improve your writing.
