Meet the Academic and Digital Skills Team


The Academic and Digital Skills Team is made up of tutors and librarians across all 3 campuses, whose job it is to help you with your academic work. 

Writing university essays, preparing for seminars, conducting research, analysing data, referencing your work. None of these come naturally to anyone, they are skills that need to be learned. Luckily your Academic and Digital Skills Team is here to help you master these skills. We are available online and in every campus library. You can book to see us or take part in any of our regular workshops and weekly drop-in sessions. We are ready to help you!

Comprising librarians, academic skills tutors, administrators and student Digital Champions, we develop services and resources responding wherever there is a need for them. We work collaboratively in temporary teams with co-creators such as faculty academic staff, students and other university departments.
