Some aspects of studying at university are very different from school, college or the workplace. This is especially true if you have been out of education for a few years. As a service we can provide you with advice on the general study skills that underpin your chosen degree course.

We offer a range of study skills workshops, as well as one to one appointments with IT Mentors, Writing Mentors, Maths Mentors and Learning Development Tutors. Ask to see the workshops timetable, the availability of our IT Mentors, Maths Mentors and Writing Mentors and one to one appointment times on our Moodle resources page. We also have self-help guides and advice on aspects of study skills that we can direct you to.

The Learning Development Tutors are available to discuss any general study skills queries that you may have, advising and supporting you to help make your time at Newman University as enjoyable as possible.

Book an appointment to see a Learning Development Tutor:

  • If you have study skills queries at any level of study, for example: grammar, spelling, or time management
  • If you want to improve your assignment grades
  • If you are concerned about a particular aspect of your studies
  • If you want advice on note-taking, essay writing or exam preparation

Also, email Learning Support (see the contact at the bottom of this page) if you would like to book an appointment with an IT, Maths or Writing Mentor (including a Master’s level Writing Mentor). Our mentors are experienced students who help students. They are excellent at offering tips and advice around IT and Writing.

The Learning Development Tutors are available Monday – Thursday 9.00am – 5.00pm, Friday 9.00am-4.30pm and Wednesday until 8.00pm, by appointment and they continue to offer bookable remote support (through Zoom, email or telephone) as well as bookable appointments on campus. Contact detailsContact: Jacqueline Ridge-Stearn and Elaine DalePosition: Learning Development TutorsTel: 0121 476 1181 (Ext. 2525)Email: learningsupport@newman.ac.uk or studyskillsadvice@newman.ac.uk
