Learning Support

The Academic Development Tutors offer regular workshops throughout the semester in areas of academic writing and other study skills and these are open to all students across the University.  Look out for weekly emails informing all students of the workshops for the week ahead. 

One to one support is also available in areas like planning essays, developing academic style, time management and critical thinking. These one to one appointments are bookable through the online booking system. Email support is available, too. Further information about one to one support can be found on Moodle once you start your course. 

Proofreading of essays is not offered, though the Academic Development Tutors can work with you to develop your proofreading skills.

Short, one to one, drop in sessions (called Sign-ups) are available most days if you have a query about your study skills – just check the Academic Development SharePoint page to see when these are.

A very useful bank of online self-help materials aims to help students develop their university level academic style.  This is available on the Academic Development SharePoint page.  You’ll find the link in the weekly email from the Academic Development Tutors.

Peer Mentors, Writing Mentors and IT mentors – experienced students – are all available to offer support.  Just ask to be matched to a mentor.
