Further Support

How to get Academic Skills Advice help

  1. Through the timetabled workshops which run in many programmes
  2. Through optional workshops which can be booked on-line (see below).
  3. Through 1-2-1 meetings with an academic skills tutor (details + self-referral form).

As a student in this School, whatever your current level of study or prior experience, it is important that you make the most of the advice and support available to you so that you can reach your full potential. The academic skills tutors and your subject lecturers can help you to be successful in your academic journey but we also ask that you play your part by making the most of the many resources available to you as a student, including this website.

Remember, we can’t include everything here – there are many other resources beyond this website that you can utilise to help you to be successful in your studies.
