The Writing Center was established in April 2013 to improve the academic writing skills of students and faculty at Hiroshima University. In November 2013, we launched one-to-one Japanese writing tutorials led by student tutors. In 2014, we began offering support in academic publishing in English with the aim to enhance the university’s research output.
Since 2016, the Writing Center at Hiroshima University, Japan, has been managing the Writing Advisor Fellowship program. This program is ideal for someone who wishes to gain professional experiences working with non-native English writers and speakers, focusing on academic writing at the tertiary level and above. The Fellow will work full-time at Hiroshima University, located at two campuses, starting from October 2019. Please refer to Application Guideline for more information.
