The Centre for Academic Writing (CAW) is an innovative teaching and research centre whose mission is to enable students at Coventry University to become independent writers, and to equip academic staff in all disciplines to achieve their full potential as authors and teachers of scholarly writing.
Student Success Coaches are delivering 'Confidence with English' series of workshops on writing; reading; speaking; and listening. Students can come to whichever one they want to develop their skills in. Each session helps students understand what they would like to work on, and provide an insight into some of the resources available.

Why not get ahead on preparing for your new academic journey with us and attend the 'Getting Started with Studying at University' workshop co-delivered by CAW and the Library. This workshop is designed to support a first-time introduction to, or anyone in need of a reminder of, studying at university level. There are expectations of two core academic practices: reading and writing. This workshop will help you to understand how independent, critical thinking fits into your course and your assignments. This workshop is only available during the first few weeks of enrolment. Book now at: https://libcal.coventry.ac.uk/calendar/caw
