At the PPLS Writing Centre, we concentrate on improving your ability to write clearly and put forward coherent arguments. We try to avoid getting into proofreading or giving advice on your essay’s content. After all, we don’t want to duplicate the help that is available from elsewhere within the University of Edinburgh. I have already written a blog post about some of the options that are available (eligibility varies).
It was a nice surprise today to see an announcement that EUSA’s peer proofreading service, which normally closes over the summer, has been made available until August 10th. Eligibility is limited to current MSc students who are non-native speakers of English. You are welcome to access this help in addition to any appointments you book with us.
