Welcome to the Academic Support Centre (ASC)! We can give you tips and advice about how to improve your study skills and your academic writing or reading.

Summer opening hours

The Academic Support Centre is closed from 8 to 14 July and from 29 July to 4 August. During the other weeks of the summer, we offer bookable consultations.

The Academic Support Centre can support Bachelor's and Master's level students when it comes to study skills and writing academic texts. You can come to us for help in finding efficient ways of working on assignments, essays and take-home exams. We can also give you tips and advice about reading and absorbing course literature. 

Depending on what suits you, we offer different types of support, both on campus and digitally. We host a number of lectures each semester on the topics of study skills and efficient reading and writing strategies. You can also book a consultation with one of our language and study consultants, register for one of our writing sessions or access our digital resources.

Our activities are free of charge and are offered in both English and Swedish. We are accessible for all the University’s students, regardless of whether you study in Lund, Malmö, Helsingborg or Ljungbyhed.

Lectures

On a number of occasions each semester, the Academic Support Centre offers lectures that all students at Lund University are welcome to attend. These lectures are offered in both English and Swedish. They are delivered digitally, on campus in Genetikhuset in Lund or on Campus Helsingborg. 

Our lectures address three different topics:

  • effective reading strategies
  • effective writing strategies
  • study skills.

Writing and study sessions

If you need somewhere to work and a study community with other students, the Academic Support Centre offers writing and study sessions. You can take part in these if you feel that your writing has got stuck or if you find your studies challenging.

The sessions take place at Genetikhuset in Lund.

You will find more information about the sessions, planned dates and how to sign up below.

Consultation

If you need support with study skills or academic writing, you can book a consultation with one of the Academic Support Centre’s language and study consultants. Consultation is offered individually or in groups. If you write together, we recommend that you attend the same consultation session.

During consultation, you can get help with:

  • getting started with writing 
  • structure
  • language and style.

Our role is not to proofread texts. During a consultation we can, however, offer advice on how to improve your language and your writing.
