Academic Resource Centre (ARC) - for a successful academic experience
Do you have to read, write or present in English? Would you like to receive some feedback? The following services might be of interest to you.
This Fall term we will run our lunch lecture series called, Say Hello to the Writing Process. In September and October, lectures are held weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:15 - 13:00 in the Balcony area in the University Library. Come to one lecture or all of them. You do not have to sign up in advance.
Whether you are an undergraduate, a master's student or a PhD student, you can turn to the ARC with your questions about academic skills.
Are you a distance student?
We can certainly help you via Skype, e-mail or by phone.
