The Academic Skills team is here to help you develop your skills so that you can learn more effectively.
Advice for studying online
We've developed some advice and guidance about learning online for all students. You can find the latest information here:
Tips for using Microsoft Teams and Zoom
We are running a series of Webinars to provide you with the skills and resources to enhance your learning at home.
One-to-one tutorial support
We also offer one-to-one 50-minute study skills tutorials and group tutorials (via Microsoft teams at present)
Students can request one-to-one support or work with others in small groups.
Study Skills Guides
There are a range of downloadable study guides available via the left menu link
Academic Skills workshops
These will run again in the Autumn term
If you have been formally identified with a specific learning difference (SpLD) such as dyslexia, dyspraxia or ADHD, the Neurodiversity support team at City can offer you specialist support with your studies including tailored one-to-one study skills tutorials. Also, the Disability Support team works with students with a range of diagnosed disabilities and long-term health conditions. Please contact the appropriate team for advice and support.
All Academic Skills advice is impartial and confidential. We also try to ensure that all calls and email messages are responded to within 3 working days.
