Book a tutorial

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. We cannot proofread or give you feedback on the content of your work, but we will work with you on proofreading strategies and exploring the assignment brief with you.

A tutorial session usually lasts around 45 minutes, and you can choose to book either an online or in-person session. To make the most of your tutorial, use our tutorial and meeting notes template before, during and after your tutorial:
