New service: Drop-in help with academic writing

The Study lab at UiS offers drop-in hours and booking of tutoring for students who want help with academic writing. The Study lab opened on Tuesday 2nd of February.

The Study lab is open Tuesdays 12 to 3 pm and Thursdays 2 pm to 5 pm. During these periods, it is possible to book tutoring in advance. In vacant periods you can have drop-in tutoring. You just bring the text that needs improvement and drop in when you feel like it.

The Study lab is located in a well equipped room on the lower ground floor of the library at Ullandhaug. It is open for all students at UiS.

What is a study lab?
In the study lab you get help to write better academic texts. Mentors help you to get started with writing, formulating your thesis statement, developing a good outline and structuring the text. In addition, you can get advice on searching for literature, source evaluation and citation techniques. The mentors are competent students, who have gone through thorough training in academic writing and supervision.

No substitute for professional guidance
We want to emphasize that the Study lab does not engage in professional tutoring. The purpose is to help with the academic writing process, not to teach you the subject you are studying. Advice from your academic supervisor always comes first!
