Study Development tutorials are 1 to 1 sessions where you can get help with your academic work and skills. You can access tutorials tailored to your learning needs and goals, and we will work with you on a learning plan appropriate for you.

Tutorials can be helpful at any stage of your assignment, from receiving a brief to final proof reading. You can get support with a range of skills, including reading, writing, planning, thinking, and maths skills.

A tutorial session usually lasts around 45 minutes, and you can choose to book either an online or in-person session.
