Academic Skills Centre (ASC)
Tracey - First year Social Work "The Academic Skills Centre offered me invaluable support from when I arrived during welcome week, to exam preparation during the third semester. The team are very approachable and friendly, and both the workshops and the Skills Advisors have made me feel more confident"
The Academic Skills Centre is a place where undergraduate students can come to develop their general academic, writing and mathematical skills. We can be located on the first floor of the main library on campus which is building R30 on the campus map (PDF - 824KB). We provide appointments from 09.00-17.00 Monday to Friday, except for every other Wednesday during term time, when we are open until 19.00.
