Academic Support Centre (ASC)
At the Academic Support Centre (ASC), and its Swedish equivalent Studieverkstaden, we provide students with tools to improve their communication skills and study strategies. We offer free consultations, workshops and lectures at our facility and by request from a department or programme.
The Academic Support Centre is open to all students studying in English at Lund University and serves students regardless of their previous knowledge or ambition level. Feel free to inform your students about the ASC or contact us to discuss how we can collaborate.
At the ASC – consultations, write nights, and workshops
The ASC helps students plan their studies and find better strategies for reading and writing. We also provide concrete feedback on all types of texts at all stages of the writing process. To sign up for any ASC activity, students can use the online booking forms at ASC's student-facing webpage.

Collaboration with departments – lectures, workshops and feedback during the academic writing process
Teaching staff and study advisers are welcome to contact us to discuss how we can collaborate.
Depending on your needs, our lectures and workshops can be either general, on study strategies, academic culture and academic writing, or more deeply focused on one aspect of these areas. Titles include:
- Why and how to incorporate sources (voices) in your text
- Critical thinking made visible: elements of an academic argument
- What it takes to avoid plagiarism
We can create or customise the content if you as a lecturer or study adviser notice a particular need among your students.
In addition to lectures or workshops, collaborations can take other forms. For example, we have worked with LUMES to develop a peer writing tutor project for their first course. Fore the Master's Programme in Biomedicine, we provide feedback on drafts for all students during a particular assignment. If you are interested in something similar or have another idea, we are always interested in discussing and developing new support forms based on your needs.
We are happy to attend teaching staff meetings to talk about how we work with students and what we see as their greatest challenges and/or to discuss integrating ASC support into your courses.
