Research & Writing Support

Basic Degree Students

Many TST colleges offer their students research and writing support. The form of this support varies from college to college. Please contact your home college to inquire about what support is available.

Advanced Degree Students

All advanced degree students who pay incidental fees have access to the Office of English Language and Writing Support (ELWS). Housed in 63 St. George Street, within the School of Graduate Studies, ELWS provides graduate students with advanced training in academic writing and speaking. Graduate students need to be able to communicate sophisticated information to sophisticated audiences. As you prepare to attend your first conference, to write your first proposal, or to publish your first paper, you will need stronger communication skills than those needed in undergraduate work. By emphasizing professional development rather than remediation, ELWS can help you cultivate the ability to diagnose and address the weaknesses in your oral and written work.

The Office of English Language and Writing Support offers four types of instruction designed to target the needs of both native and non-native speakers of English: non-credit courses, single-session workshops, individual writing consultations, and website resources. All of our programs are free. While the workshops function on a drop-in basis, consultations require an appointment, and courses require registration.

* Please note that basic degree students do not have access to the Office of English Language and Writing Support.
