We are the learning and academic development advice centre for all students at the university.
We work with students who are keen to develop their academic abilities and improve their grades, whatever their course, year, or ability level.
Much of our support is given in one-to-one tutorials, so we can tailor our input to the specific needs of individual students. We also work with small groups and run workshops.
What can we do for you?
We can help you get the most from your learning in a variety of ways:
- we can advise you on effective note-making strategies; support you in developing your research skills and evidence-based academic writing (including referencing)
- improve your critical thinking; and help you to get the most from the feedback on your assignments.
We can support you in accessing and using online resources effectively in your learning. We also offer support in numeracy, financial and statistical skills and can advise you on effective time and task management strategies.
We also have expertise in supporting students whose first language is not English.
We also run campus-based pre-sessional courses and online social networking environments and activities for students about to begin their studies here. For more information, please see our pre-sessional academic skills courses.
