Summer Session 2016
May 16 - August 5
Who Can Use the Victoria College Writing Centre?
During the 2016 Summer Session, all undergraduate students taking courses in the Faculty of Arts and Science on the St. George campus may reserve up to TWO appointments per week at any of the six college writing centres that remain open for the summer: Innis College, New College, St. Michael's College, University College, Victoria College, and Woodsworth College. (UTM and UTSC students may also book appointment downtown, but only for work in St. George campus courses.)
All students who are registered at Victoria College; Arts and Science students who are enrolled in VIC courses; Faculty of Music undergraduate students; TST Emmanuel College students.
What we do:
The Writing Centre offers a tutorial service on an individual appointment basis. Each student receives individual help with a writing instructor. The session may last up to 50 minutes. The exact time allotment will be determined by the instructor.
Instructors help you develop your capacity to plan, organize, write and revise your essays, reviews, lab reports, case studies, and other academic papers. They will go over your work, and help you gain your own skills in writing, revising and editing. However, Instructors are not there to do your proofreading.
What you can do:
Book your appointment at least 2 weeks in advance. Students may sign up for one appointment per week.
TIP: If you are used to seeing the same writing instructor often, you might consider working with other writing instructors from time to time to help you get a different perspective.
If you need to cancel an appointment, please do so as soon as possible but at least 24 hours in advance. This will allow other students to get an appointment with an instructor sooner. Failing to cancel your appointment within the required time or simply not showing up to your scheduled appointment may result in you being blocked from booking further sessions. *
PLEASE NOTE: Blocks of appointments are released two weeks in advance.
