Academic skills support

Whether you have come to University straight from school or college or after some years in work or raising a family, you will have certainly found that it differs in many ways from any studying you’ve done before. We offer assistance and help with academic development for students at the University through personal Academic Skills Tutors.

The Academic Skills tutors will help you find your feet in those first few weeks and to develop the skills you need to succeed whatever challenges you face throughout your course. They will help you improve your academic writing style, structure your work appropriately, construct arguments, gain confidence in referencing, finding and evaluating information, or in preparing for exams.

More information about Academic Skills Tutors support can be found on our Academic Skills webpage. There is also a Student Views Video Gallery where you can find out how some of our students have benefitted from the advice and guidance of our Academic Skills Tutors.
