Peer Writing Mentors are UON students here to provide you with advice on developing your writing skills. Bring along a hard copy of your writing, the assignment question and the marking criteria. The Peer Writing Mentors can:

  • Give you advice about study skills, writing and referencing.
  • Offer general feedback about your writing or discuss ideas and concerns with you about your work.
  • Show you strategies for how to do something (e.g. Use a referencing style, analyse a question and interpret marking criteria, structure an essay, use a writing or note taking planner).
  • Provide you with referral to other services for futher assistance.

The mentors can not correct your work, but can provide advice about any areas that need improvement.


Whether you need time alone or you’re feeling social, whether you need help or just want to explore the shelves, remember the library is the heart of your studies.

And if you don’t study on campus keep in touch via Instagram, Library News blog, or Twitter
