Academic writing centers provide one-to-one training and consultancy services for academic and professional writing needs. Our academic staff who come to the center have the opportunity to work one-on-one with experienced staff working in the center. During one-to-one counseling, our aim is to help our academicians improve their writing skills by providing the necessary knowledge and strategies on English academic writing skills, which are quite different from Turkish, and by increasing their awareness of their own writing processes. In this way, our academicians, who receive services from our center, have the opportunity to examine their draft texts with our expert staff and receive immediate and effective feedback and consultancy about their mistakes. In this context, all kinds of academic texts such as abstracts, articles, CVs, application letters written in English by our academic staff are arranged from a professional perspective.
