If you need support in writing academic texts, you can get it from the Mid Sweden University writing tutors.


Writing tutoring is intended to help you further develop your writing and should therefore be considered as a complement to the support given by teachers and supervisors (rather than a quick fix for writing assignments).

We can help you with:

  • finding a suitable academic style (avoiding colloquialisms or unnecessarily complicated language).
  • sorting out language matters regarding for example grammar and punctuation.
  • forming coherent sentences and paragraphs.

What we cannot help you with:

  • Feedback on topic or content.
  • Proofreading or corrections of the text.

Drop-in, students
