How to get Academic Skills Advice help

Academic writing workshops and one-to-ones

If you and some of your peers would like to attend a workshop but the offered dates are not suitable, or you require a Level 7 workshop, get in touch with Valerie Brossier (v.brossier@herts.ac.uk).

One-to-ones booking

Email a completed Self-referral form to Valerie Brossier (v.brossier@herts.ac.uk) to request a one-to-one session. No need to book onto a workshop first – get in touch as early as possible. A member of the academic skills team will contact you to arrange on-line or face-to-face support.

Please note: One-to-one assignment support is provided on a first come, first served basis. For subject specific advice, please contact lecturers on your module team.

Further information is available on the One-to-one sessions page.


Literature searching support requests

For literature searching support, please contact helpdesk@herts.ac.uk requesting support from the Academic Engagement Team. Please include some detail on what you need help with and a member of the team will be in touch. 


Other drop-ins and workshops

The University’s Centre for Academic English also provides support to improve your writing and study skills. We recommend you take advantage of the frequent drop-in sessions and the broad range of workshops that they provide.
