Academic Writing Support:

The Academic Writing Centre provides a free service to all DIT students (undergraduate and postgraduate) who seek support to enhance and develop their academic writing skills. 

What is academic writing?

As part of college work students are required to submit written assignments, essays, projects, examination scripts, dissertations and theses. These require students to be able to eg present information, communicate ideas, develop and make an argument effectively.  Defined as academic writing skills, these core competences are viewed as a key indicator for student success in college.
