Giving you the skills to take charge of your own learning experience
Study skills

We help you prepare for university study. Your department may also provide additional support.

Personal tutors

Personal tutors are an academic member of staff who is assigned to you as your individual person tutor for the duration of your study. They will support your academic progress, the development of your transferable skills and assist with any welfare issues. You will have regular contact with your personal tutor and are encouraged to see them whenever you need support.

Academic Skills Centre

On arrival at university you may need additional support with degree-level academic writing and mathematics, or general study skills. These are just the sorts of thing that the Student Mentor can assist with. Staffed by experienced tutors and advisors, they provide individual support and group sessions in a friendly, relaxed environment for all undergraduate students. Students can drop in for one-to-one help, sign up for workshops, or discuss with their personal tutors any support they might need or areas that they would like to develop.

Subject support from the library

Our library subject advisors are available to help you in developing your research skills, whether for essays, dissertations, or project work. They will meet you one-on-one to give you the advice, training and support you need.

Student Disability Service

We provide disability support through the Student Disability Service if you have a specific learning difficulty.
