Academic Skills Support

What is it?

You may well find that studying at university is quite different from your previous learning experiences.  We can help you adapt and develop your skills.

Who is it for?

All students (both under graduate and postgraduate) who want to raise their level of achievement. 

Why would I need it?

  • To study more effectively and be in control of your learning.  We can help you to apply the skills needed to succeed.

  • Support and resources to enable the successful completion of your assignments

When is it available?

We can offer face to face appointments by arrangement  between 8am and 8pm (9am and 5pm, Stafford).  Please call in to see us.  We may not be able to help immediately, as we do get busy, but we will book you an appointment to suit you.  We can also organise support via electronic means.
