Time to Put Pen to Paper!

Lucy Bent London Center


February 14, 2018

Open to all students enrolled in study-abroad Arcadia programmes in  England and Wales, the Writing Center is a great way to get advice and support on your upcoming papers.

Take the stress out of essay writing:

Our resident faculty at Arcadia London are on hand to help! Available via weekly office hours, throughout the semester, they can help out with anything from perfecting your writing style, to researching, to grammar, and encourage you to ask about any aspects of academic life about which you are unsure.

Be warned, they won't actually write your essays, but they’ll give invaluable guidance to help you on your way. So make sure you bring something along, or at least have a clear idea about what it is you wish to discuss!

The main services offered are:

  • Editing Essays and Coursework:  please bring a hard copy of the assignment and come with specific questions and points of concern. Studio staff will not proofread work, and may not have time to read the entire paper or project.
  • General writing support: students of all levels require guidance with the organisation, presentation, and argumentation of their written work. You can seek help in how to improve the general standard of your writing. We can also assist with issues surrounding grammar, syntax, and referencing.
  • Research methods: receive support on how to conduct research, both primary and secondary, for your assignments. You’ll get advice on how to construct a strong bibliography of appropriate sources.
  • Other academic advice: the Writing Center also offers assistance with the writing of applications for further study or experience, such as internships and graduate programmes.
