Written corrective feedback (WCF) is significantly important for students at all levels as it can help them enhance their second language writing ability after making errors in writing. However, without urgent understandings of students’ preferences, the effectiveness of WCF definitely weakens. This study, thus, aimed at investigating students’ preferences for WCF. To achieve this aim, relevant literature on WCF in terms of value, timing, sources, strategies, amount, and focus of WCF and students’ preferences were reviewed. Based upon this conceptual framework, the survey study with a questionnaire was conducted at Binh Thuan Vocational College in Vietnam with the participation of 35 IT-majored students. The findings of this study showed that these students had positive perceptions and preferences of WCF in their writing learning. Based on the research findings, the paper concluded with pedagogical implications and a recommendation for further study in the line of research on WCF.
