Academic Skills Support


The Student Advisers in Skills and Learner Development offer a range of services designed to support students' academic skills development. Each trimester we run a series of open academic skills workshops, covering academic writing, critical thinking, presentation skills, referencing, dissertation management, exam revision and more.


We will also work with you to develop customised academic skills development session for your students, specific to the needs of your programme.
