Workshop Timetable and How to Attend

Dates, Times, and Venues for Wordscope

On this page you will find all of the information necessary to register for one of the Wordscope workshops running during Semester 2 of academic year 2018-2019.

You MUST NOT REGISTER for any Wordscope Workshop Group if you are unable to commit to ALL of the workshops. If, for example, you know that you will be going on placement during the semester, you should first contact Wordscope to discuss how you might work out a timetable to ensure that you are able to attend the full programme. It is often possible to work out a schedule which will work around your other commitments. For example, you might need to join Group One to ensure that you complete the first five workshops but then later join Group Seven so that you can complete the full programme.

There are either FIVE or TEN workshops in a Wordscope programme.

Please read the information for each Workshop group carefully to ensure that you choose the one which best suits your timetable. YOU MUST USE YOUR SALFORD EMAIL ADDRESS TO COMMUNICATE WITH WORDSCOPE. You cannot register without a valid University email address. YOU MUST CONTACT WORDSCOPE IF YOU REQUIRE FURTHER INFORMATION. NO OTHER ORGANISATION ON CAMPUS IS ABLE TO HELP YOU!

Please record ALL of the date, time, and venue information in your Diary. It is important to do so because the workshop venue may be different from week to week. Each workshop runs for 1.5 hours.

NOTE: WHEN YOU REGISTER FOR A WORKSHOP GROUP, YOU MUST NOT REGISTER WITH ANY OTHER GROUP. For example, if you register for Workshop Group One, then you have registered for ALL of its FIVE workshops. If you have registered for Group Three, then you have committed yourself to ALL of its TEN workshops. But if you were then to register for Workshop Group Eight, you would block another student from registering for the Wordscope programme, denying them the opportunity to improve their academic writing skills. Thus, if you register for more than ONE group, you will be removed from BOTH groups. IF YOU REGISTER FOR MORE THAN ONE GROUP, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND WORDSCOPE UNTIL THE FOLLOWING SEMESTER.

When you have found a group which suits your timetable, you simply press CLICK to REGISTER. You will then be taken to a registration page. PLEASE NOTE that when a group is FULL, the Booking System will not accept any further registrations, even if the CLICK to REGISTER button takes you to the registration page. We try to update the website as soon as a group is FULL, but it is not always possible to do so immediately. The Booking System includes the option to add yourself to the group’s “Waiting List,” which means that you will be contacted if anyone removes themself from the register.

When you register for a group, you are making a commitment to attend ALL of its workshops, though the Registration page will indicate that you have only signed up for one workshop. When you have completed Workshop One, the system will register you automatically for the next workshop.

If for some reason you find that you cannot attend your chosen Workshop group, please return immediately to the registration page and remove yourself from the Group. Workshop seats are in great demand, so if you remove yourself quickly, a student on the waiting list has an opportunity to join the group.

If you cannot for some reason attend a workshop, you are strongly encouraged to make the effort to catch up with your group. You should search the website for a group which has not as yet completed the workshop which you require. PLEASE NOTE that it does not matter if the group that you need is marked as FULL. You DO NOT need to register for the group through the booking system and DO NOT need to email Wordscope to confirm your choice: simply go along to the group on the day and tell the tutor why you need to attend that workshop. Your attendance will be recorded. If you miss a workshop, you MUST contact Wordscope as soon as possible to indicate that you wish to continue with the programme.

Note: the web page is updated whenever it is necessary to alter a workshop's details, so it is always best to check dates and times before you plan to make up a missed workshop.

If you cannot find a group below which fits with your timetable, new groups are occasionally added during the semester, and new groups will be organised for the next semester. Please contact Wordscope at if you would like to be put on the "to contact" list for new workshops.

If you register for a workshop group and miss Workshop One and DO NOT CONTACT WORDSCOPE IMMEDIATELY to explain your absence, you will be removed from the group because students on a Workshop's “Waiting List” must have the opportunity to join as quickly as possible. IF YOU MISS TWO WORKSHOPS IN A ROW AND DO NOT CONTACT WORDSCOPE, YOU WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE GROUP. Students who register for a group but never attend could be refused permission to join Wordscope in the future.

Any questions about Wordscope should be addressed to Do not telephone Wordscope, and please DO NOT contact Student Life or AskUS about any issues regarding Wordscope. These organisations have NO relation to Wordscope. The only place where you can receive help is Wordscope.
