​One-to-one Guidance


Students can receive one-to-one guidance from an Academic Skills Adviser on any aspect of academic skills from how to structure essays and dissertations to referencing, using citations, and preparing for exams.


​To get the most from one-to-one academic skills guidance we ask students to please bring the following:

  • an example of a writing with the assignment guidelines
  • any feedback they have received from Module leader, or lectureny feedback they have received from their Module leader, or lecturer


Times, days and campuses where students can receive one-to-one academic skills guidance are available on myNapier, but please check the news page for any changes.


Dissertation drop-ins


We also offer dissertation guidance drop-ins during trimester 3. No appointment necessary. Students can just
‘drop-in’ to speak to one of our Academic Skills Advisers about any issues related to the presentation, structure and writing of dissertations or final project.


It is advised that students should bring a print-out of their work or plan so far plus Dissertation handbook or brief and any feedback from their supervisor.

One-to-one bookable appointments​


Students may also book a one-to-one 30 minute appointment up to 2 hours in advance. Please read the Academic Skills Adviser Terms and Conditions to see what we can and cannot cover during these sessions.
