One-on-one Help with Admissions Letters
You can reserve one appointment per academic term in our regular Writing Centre schedule to address graduate and professional schools application materials, such as personal statements. You may have additional appointments only if they are drop-in appointments (not booked ahead of time). You can also bring application and admission letters to the Writing Room, our drop-in space. We provide support for personal statements for students registered in New College and also for students majoring in one of our programs (Caribbean Studies, Equity Studies, African Studies, Buddhist Psychology and Mental Health; also Women and Gender Studies, Human Biology). We do not look at job application materials (resumes and cover letters) at the Writing Centre.

Pay particular attention to the CV and Personal Statement Camps being offered January 10, 2020. These “camps” are modelled after New College’s own Writing Retreats and will be productive places to make headway on your application, with support and feedback from New College Writing Instructors, Career Educators, and peers.
