Academic Writing tips for Northampton Students

Great news! Our Centre for Achievement and Performance (CfAP) has launched an academic writing support available for our students.

They offer a personalised coaching course, open to all our students regardless of course or level. Not sure you need it? See if you answer yes to any of these questions:

I want to improve my academic writing skills and get better grades

I need to address one of the most frequent areas of feedback from my tutor

I need confidence in approaching the next level of my course

I work better with personalised feedback

If you answered yes to any of the above then our writing coach scheme will work for you. My Writing Coach is completely free and can be taken online over 6 weeks so that it can fit around your studies.

The next course starts on the 30th of May with 1 in-class workshop, and further 8–10 hours of online sessions to help develop your writing at your own pace. You will also receive a weekly personal feedback on writing assignments from an online writing community of peers.

Are you interested or want to find out more? Please email

Please note that this module is a new course. It will be developed in response to participants’ feedback throughout so please do feel free to tell us what you need during the course.
