Build your confidence with WriteWISE

WriteWISE is a student-led service available to all undergraduate and postgraduate coursework students.

WriteWISE leaders are senior Macquarie students trained to provide academic writing support and to give advice on effective study strategies, such as managing your time and reading effectively.

WriteWISE leaders can help you with:

  • academic writing
  • analyse assignment questions
  • referencing
  • study strategies
  • strategies for research

WriteWISE leaders can't:

  • provide proofreading or ‘fix up’ assignments for you
  • give advice relating to course content
  • teach English or help students with IELTS preparation. For IELTS  preparation see the IELTS Test Centre and the Macquarie University College for English language courses.

WriteWISE Leaders are Macquarie students who are here to help you with your academic writing. Please be mindful that the advice given during a consultation is to assist you in your learning and that the instructions by your tutors and lecturers take precedence.

Starting 28 April, WriteWISE is available on campus and online!
