The Research Writing Consultant provides advice about academic writing to Research Master and Doctoral students, particularly those whose first language is not English. This service includes advice about:

  • grammar;
  • punctuation;
  • structure;
  • paragraphing;
  • motivation;
  • how culture can influence writing;
  • preparation of proposals;
  • starting the writing process; and
  • writing about findings.

Students are advised to seek assistance early in their candidature. Preference is given to international students but advice is not restricted to this group.
