All staff and students at the University of Auckland are eligible for a free Grammarly Premium subscription.
Grammarly Premium contains:
- A grammar checker
- A contextual spelling checker
- A vocabulary enhancer
- A plagiarism checker
Victoria Hawkins is a PhD student in the School of Biological Science. She says that “Grammarly is fantastic. It picks up issues that other spelling and grammar checkers don’t. Not only does Grammarly check your spelling, but it helps with sentence structure, vocabulary and flow, which helps improve your overall writing style.”
She doesn’t just use Grammarly when writing about her neurogenetic research. “Grammarly allows you to set your writing style from casual to academic writing, making it great for any writing you do.”
“Whether you want just to check your spelling or are looking to improve your writing style, Grammarly is excellent.”
As the Web Content Lead at the University of Auckland, it’s important for Frazer Orr to get the tone just right. He says that “even confident writers can benefit from using Grammarly. Its assistant is very good at keeping you focused on your audience and your writing goals”
“Now that everyone at the University of Auckland can access a premium subscription, I’d recommend they try it out for themselves.”
