Online writing and study support

Teaching has gone online and so has academic writing and study support!

You can discuss your assignment with someone, search for resources, get feedback on a written draft, or find out more about writing different types of assignments. There's a range of online options available to all Macquarie students.

WriteWISE: Chat with a peer-writing leader online

The WriteWISE peer writing service will commence in Week 2 of Session 1, 2021!

WriteWISE Peer Writing Leaders and Learning Advisers are available to discuss your assignments or study issues with you. There is no need to make an appointment.

You can discuss questions about:

  • academic writing
  • referencing
  • study strategies

It’s helpful to have your assignment questions, unit guides and/or marked assignments ready before your chat session.

Chat sessions are run from Weeks 2 to 12 during teaching weeks.

  • Mondays to Thursdays, 11am to 5pm
  • Fridays, 11am to 4pm

Consultations do not:

  • provide proofreading or ‘fix up’ assignments for you
  • give advice relating to course content
  • teach English or help students with IELTS preparation. The IELTS Test Centre and the English Language Centre (MUELC) offer test preparation services, courses and resources.

To start chatting with a WriteWISE leader or a Learning Adviser, click on the chat button at the bottom of this page. We strongly recommend that you connect to the chat service using the Chrome browser.
