I keep failing written assignments. What can I do about this?

First of all discuss the matter with the lecturers whose assignments you have failed. Make sure that they provide you with concrete feedback, so that you can understand what you need to improve. You can also find advice on improving your writing skills on our study tips webpages (in English) and on the studietips blog (in Dutch). If this is not enough, you can also discuss the issue with one of the student psychologists during their open consulation hours.

The Academic Language Centre also offers courses in academic writing.
