Academic Writing Help Centre (AWHC)


As one of the five student services of the Student Academic Success Service (SASS), we are committed to contributing to the academic success of all the students on campus and to enriching the quality of their university experience. Our goal is to help students develop strategies and skills that will enable them to identify and correct their mistakes. To do so, we offer individual writing appointments, classroom presentations and workshops, and online writing resources.

How to book an appointment?

Before making your first appointment, you must activate your Ventus account in person at the AWHC. Once your account will be activated, you will be able to make all your appointments online by using your student profile. If you have questions, or if you are unable to login to Ventus, contact our team.
