If you want to discuss a text or a presentation you are working on, you can book a session with an advisor, specialising in academic language and writing. At the booked time, the advisor will meet with you for a session that lasts approximately 45 minutes. During the session, you can ask questions, discuss your ideas, and get feedback on your work. Advising does not mean that your text or assignment is corrected or assessed. You will also not get feedback on subject-specific content. An advisor can provide suggestions on how you can work on your assignment and continue to develop your written and oral skills in academic contexts.
If you are working on a text, you and the advisor can look at structure and wording together to see how you can develop your text and writing overall. If you are working on an oral assignment, you can get advice on your presentation and performance. The advising session can also be used to address other questions you have about reading, writing, and speaking in academic contexts.
You can book advising sessions three times per term, but only one at a time. If you are two students who are working together on, for example, a degree project, you can book up to three advising sessions for that joint project.
Book via the booking system
You book an advising session using your student account (gus-account) via a booking system where you can see who has available times and choose a time that suits you.
