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 study skills tutorials, group tutorials, downloadable study guides and academic skills workshops.

Students can request one-to-one support or work with others in small groups.

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 help is impartial and confidential. We also try to ensure that all calls and email messages are responded to within 3 working days.

Our tutors can help with:

  • Improving your referencing
  • Developing critical thinking and discussion
  • Reading skills
  • Managing your time
  • Writing your dissertation
  • Improving your revision techniques
  • Improving your exam performance
  • Understanding feedback

Academic skills workshops are also on offer throughout the year.
