Staff talking together

We offer confidential individual appointments for undergraduates and postgraduate taught students (UG and MA/MSc). We can help with writing skills, study strategies, referencing, or searching for high quality sources for your assignments.

For help with Office, SPSS, Photoshop, etc contact the Digital Skills team. If you are a postgraduate research student (i.e. MRes or PhD), contact our Research Skills team who can advise on advanced literature searching, referencing, 'open research' and 'research profile' building. If you're an HSMC student, you can access support via the HSMC Library.

Appointments are available throughout the academic year from Monday to Friday 09:00 to 17:00, but please note there is a reduced service outside of term time. We can offer you four appointments per academic year. 

Please look at our guidelines before booking. We are here to develop your skills rather than proofread or check your work. If you’re looking for help with writing skills, you may wish to bring along your past assignments, and the feedback you’ve had, to discuss how you can improve in the future.

We can only read one paragraph of work that has not yet been submitted or assessed. We can look at an assignment plan, and discuss your general approach to the piece of work, but we’re unable to read whole drafts before they have been handed in.

If you bring in work that has already been assessed, with your tutor’s feedback, we can read the marked assignment and help you to reflect on the feedback you’ve received and how you will build on it in the future.

Fill in the form below to book. We’ll do our best to fit you in as soon as possible but we are very busy during term-time, so please book in advance, especially if you need help with a particular assignment. Please provide at least three possible appointment times in the form below. 

We hope you’ll find your appointment really useful.
