Writing and Learning Centre

Our purpose is to support you in your academic work. At any stage of your academic career.

Appointments (including Maths and Stats) are available in-person and online. Book an appointment slot with an advisor and choose a time that suits you. If you've chosen an online appointment you'll be sent a calendar invitation with a link to a Google Meet so you can log into the appointment at the correct time. If you've chosen an in-person appointment, find us in LY.121 in Newton Park Library.

Students on placement may send a draft assignment for written feedback. Attach your draft to an email to: wlc@bathspa.ac.uk and tell us on which specific elements you would like advice.

Distance learning

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

We endeavour to reply to queries within 2/3 working days but at busy times there may be a delay of 4/5 working days before your essay feedback is available.

Email wlc@bathspa.ac.uk, attaching your work to the email and including your student number in the email headline. Include the type of help you require, for example, referencing or structure.  It is also really helpful if you include the assignment brief as well.

Alternatively, book an online appointment.
