How to get Academic Skills Advice help


Use the resources on this website throughout your studies, focus on the recommended resources to get you started and make sure you attend timetabled workshops which run in many programmes. This page contains support information about:


Academic writing one-to-ones and workshops

One-to-ones booking

Complete the one-to-ones online booking form to request a one-to-one support session with one of our academic skills tutors. 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.

To access the booking form you’ll need to log in to your UH Microsoft Office 365 account with your UH username (e.g. abc123@herts.ac.uk) and password.

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 and a word document version of the booking form is available on the One-to-one sessions page.

Group workshop booking (Currently on hold)

Workshops are currently on hold. We’ll be scheduling new workshops in the coming months. When they’re running you can select ‘Book Now’ below to see the dates and book your place on the extra HSK workshops.

To access the booking form you’ll need to log in to your UH Microsoft Office 365 account with your UH username (e.g. abc123@herts.ac.uk) and password.

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 Amandip Bisel (a.bisel@herts.ac.uk).
