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 with a writing advisor, you must activate your Ventus account in person at the AWHC. You will then be able to make your next appointments from home or from your mobile phone by using your online profile.
