English language support
The English language support is open to all students at Karlstad University. Our aim is to help you improve your English language skills and make you more confident about using English for academic purposes.
17 March 2020:
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, all academic-writing tutorials at the library will be held online (e.g. via Zoom) until further notice.
We offer individual guidance regarding:
- How to structure the content logically and clearly
- How to make the text coherent
- How to improve your linguistic skills; grammar, vocabulary, etc.
- Which tone and style are best suited for the text.
We will neither correct the mistakes for you, nor proofread the entire text. Instead, we will work together with you to improve it. Our aim is to provide you with the tools you need to continue to work on your own to develop your academic writing skills.
Welcome to the Academic Writing Center
Academic Writing Center is located at Karlstad University Library, floor 3.
Make an appointment
You can make an appointment for the English language support by doing the following:
Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Write the following in your first contact
- Your full name
- The subject/program you are studying
- What aspects you want to discuss and which questions you have for the teacher etc.
When your appointment is registered you will be contacted by a tutor. For a good and effective guidance send the text or the relevant pages as an attachment with your e-mail at least five days before the meeting with the tutor (unless otherwise agreed upon with the tutor). You cannot expect the tutor to have looked into the text if it is sent in late.
Students are entitled to three language support sessions; after that their needs will be assessed before they receive further support.
You can also make an appointment in our online booking system. Note that the system is in swedish, if you have problems please contact Roald McManus.
