Writing and Learning Centre – Bath Spa University

Writing and Learning Centre

The Writing and Learning Centre is here to support you in your academic work, at any stage of your academic career.

Based at the Library, the Writing and Learning Centre is here to help Bath Spa students and staff in their academic pursuits. Whether you’d like some feedback on your writing or help with maths and statistics, we offer a range of support, which is available both in-person and online.

Our services

In addition to support with assignments, we offer a range of services and resources to help you with your studies and develop skills to thrive academically.

One-to-one appointments

Appointments (including maths and statistics) are available in-person and online.

If you've chosen an online appointment you'll be sent a calendar invitation with a link to a Google Meet so that you can log into the appointment at the correct time. For in-person appointments, you’ll find us in the Library in room LY121.

In-person appointments are available in Locksbrook during term-time on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9.00-2.00.

  • You may only book one appointment slot at a time.
  • You can book a second appointment per assignment (once you have attended your first appointment) and have up to four for a dissertation.
  • Please have some work or drafts ready to share during the appointment.

Book a workshop

Are you and your peers interested in a workshop? We may be able to offer student workshops to groups of four or more. Please send us a message via the 'Query' icon to arrange.

For students on low residency courses and placements

Email feedback is available for students on placement or low residency courses.

Please send us a 'Query', attach your work and include your student number in the message headline. Let us know what kind of help you require, for example, referencing or structure. It’s also very helpful if you include the assignment brief as well.

We endeavour to reply to queries within 3 working days, but at busy times there may be a delay of up to 5 working days before your essay feedback is available.

Alternatively, you can book an online appointment.

Online resources

Our online resources on the Library and WLC Minerva community space offer hints and tips on a wide range of academic skills including academic writing, referencing, maths and statistics, digital literacy and critical thinking.

Online referencing drop in service

If you need help with referencing, you can drop in online to chat with an advisor about any queries. This service is available Monday - Friday, 12:00pm - 1:00pm during term time.
