The McGill Writing Centre

Revision, January 2013. Start of revision.

The McGill Writing Centre (MWC) offers credit courses in academic writing for both native and non-native speakers of English. In addition to its credit course offerings, the MWC offers non-credit courses, workshops, and individualized tutoring. For further information, please visit the MWC website: www.mcgill.ca/mwc.

Courses coded as CEAP (for native speakers of English) and CESL (for non-native speakers of English) may be taken to fulfil language requirements or as electives in some degree programs. In some faculties, you need to obtain approval from your Student Affairs Office as well as from your academic adviser before you take courses outside of your faculty, especially if the courses are part of your program requirements.
