1.    About us

The NUST Writing Unit exists to provide English language use and writing support to NUST students and staff. We provide a place where all NUST students can get help with their writing.  We offer half-hour one-on-one teaching and learning, where students work closely with consultants at every stage of the writing process. Walk-ins are welcome if a consultant is available, but students are encouraged to make online appointments using our online booking form.  The Writing Unit is not a proofreading or editing service—our goal is to teach students to write independently.

2.    Our services

We believe that anyone can master the English language regardless of their background, social class, race or tribe. Whether one is a first, second or third language English speaker, the Writing Unit can help individuals hone their writing skills and improve the quality of their work in any subject.
Tutorials
We offer half hour to an hour, one-on-one and group tutorials to assist students improve their writing throughout their academic journey.
Workshops

Editing
The Writing Unit does not proofread or edit documents. However, we have a list of private editors who can edit documents on request for N$35 per page (2017-2018 price). When you need your thesis or any other document edited, you can contact the Unit and be connected to one of the editors on the list who you will have to pay privately.
