The UC Writing Centre

If you're registered at University College, you have access to free one-on-one appointments at the UC Writing Centre. Our highly trained instructors will consult with you individually on course assignments at any stage of the writing process and in any subject. Other undergraduate students enrolled in University College program courses may bring in work for those courses. UC students may book up to two regular appointments a year for help on an application letter, admissions statement, or grant proposal. 

You may book one appointment and up to three future appointments at any time. There is no limit on the total appointments you book over the term.
