What is academic writing?

As part of college work students are required to submit written assignments, essays, projects, examination scripts, dissertations and theses. These require students to be able to eg present information, communicate ideas, develop and make an argument effectively.  Defined as academic writing skills, these core competences are viewed as a key indicator for student success in college.

How the Centre works

The Academic Writing Centre was established by DIT to assist students become competent writers in an academic environment.

Tutors at the Academic Writing Centre are specially trained to provide advice and guidance to help equip students with the necessary skills to be able to manage and complete all forms of written academic work from planning a piece of work, improving their writing style to the final editing of a document.
