The Academic Learning Support team is here to help you develop your skills so that you can learn more effectively.

We offer a range of support including: one-to-one support, downloadable study guides, study skills tutorials and academic skills workshops.

One-to-one support

One form of support is 50-minute, one-to-one appointments with an ALS tutor. Two-to-one appointments are also encouraged. Students can have up to two appointments per month or two per piece of work. To ensure confidentiality, anything you tell us in these sessions is only discussed within the Learning Success and Student Counselling & Mental Health staff teams.

This means, for example, that we will not disclose information about you to your academic department. However, we might make exceptions to this protocol if we believe that you or someone you know is at risk of harm.

We do not offer a proofreading service. For International students, English Language support may be provided by the English for Academic Purposes service.
