A mature distance learner studying

Distance learners and other students who are unable to come to campus can receive one-to-one writing help and advice via email.

Send a sample of your writing and receive feedback via email within five working days. 

How to receive support:

  • Send a sample of your writing of your work to writing-language-skills@york.ac.uk This can be a plan, draft or completed essay.
  • Clearly state what aspects of your writing you need help with by formulating questions such as "How can I develop my argument in my introduction?" or "I feel my style of writing is too descriptive, and here is a section as an example".
  • Indicate what you would like the tutor to comment on, for example, paragraph or sentence structure, argument development.

Please also include in your email:

  • Your full name
  • Department and course
  • Level of study (UG / PGT / PGR).
