Workshop Timetable and How to Attend

Dates, Times, and Venues for Wordscope

PLEASE NOTE: Wordscope is no longer taking registrations for this current semester. If you would like to be considered for a Workshop Group for next semester, please email Wordscope here and ask if you can be put on the Wordscope "to contact" list.

On this page you will find Registration information for the Wordscope workshops running during Semester 1 of academic year 2017-2018. 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.

NOTE: WHEN YOU REGISTER FOR A WORKSHOP GROUP, YOU MUST NOT REGISTER WITH ANY OTHER GROUP. For example, if you register for Workshop Group 1, which runs on Monday at 10:00 a.m., you are registered for that group and for ALL of its TEN workshops. If you were then to register for Workshop Group 8, you would deny another student 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, press the red Click to Register button. You will then be taken to a registration page. PLEASE NOTE that you cannot register for any Workshop group when the Click to Register button is not red. When a group is FULL, whether or not it is indicated on the website, it will not accept any new registration.

Please record ALL of the date, time, and venue information in your Diary. It is important to do so because the workshop venue may change from week to week. Each workshop runs for 1.5 hours. There are TEN workshops in a Wordscope programme.

When you register for a group, you are making a commitment to attend ALL TEN 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 one of the TEN workshops, you are strongly encouraged to make the effort to catch up with your group. You MUST also contact Wordscope as soon as possible to indicate that you wish to continue with the programme. You should also 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 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.

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 the Workshop 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. The only place where you can receive help is Wordscope.
