Support and advice

Academic skills and study support

We want you to make the most of your time with us. You can access study skills support through your tutor, our subject librarians, and our online academic skills centre.

Where appropriate, we provide support in academic English and mathematics. If you need to use IT packages for a specific module, we provide training for this.

We place great emphasis on our students' abilities to reflect upon and see their practical and theoretical work in a larger critical context. To this end, we sharpen writing and presentation skills through a variety of assignments that go beyond standard essays and reports.

Our students hone their writing skills (journalistic, creative and academic) through descriptive, analytical and critical writing, presentations and hands-on use of digital media tools. You will also develop professional skills by working with others to see projects (sometimes large ones) through from idea to completion.
