Write Site Service

The Write Site aims to help students with their academic writing needs. The consultants at the Write Site are trained to identify students’ individual writing needs and work with them to become better writers, as well as produce improved academic writing assignments. The services at the Write Site are free of charge, and students are encouraged to visit us as often as possible for assistance with their writing tasks throughout their studies at the UFS. Contact us at writesite@ufs.ac.za to make a booking.

Visit our Write Site BFN organisation on Blackboard for more information!
