Academic skills support
Regardless of whether you are a new undergraduate, or moving into your second or final year, everyone can benefit from reviewing their general academic writing and skills. To help you develop the skills that you need to study effectively, we offer confidential appointments, workshops and online resources.
We offer a confidential appointments service for all undergraduate students to help you develop strategies to improve your general academic writing skills. To make an appointment please email us providing details of when you are available and what support you would like.
Prior to the appointment, we would like you to complete a reflection plan. Please note that we cannot look at more than one paragraph of unsubmitted work. Therefore, please bring with you any work that you have already submitted, and the feedback you have received from your tutor. This feedback will help us to identify the strategies that you need to develop in order to improve your work.
