You can access up to six individual tutorials per academic year.

In your tutorial, a Study Development tutor will help you with your academic work. You can work with us at any stage of your assignment, from receiving a brief to final proof reading. 

We can help you:

  • Improve your study strategies
  • Reflect on your planning process
  • Develop your academic writing skills


Attend a workshop

The Study Development team runs Study for Success workshops throughout the university year, and they are open to all York St John students. Each workshop targets a specific study skill or assignment type, and is designed to help you develop the tools to improve that skill and apply it independently in your studies.

Our Semester 2 workshops run on Tuesdays, 1:00pm to 2:30pm. All sessions will take place remotely through Microsoft Teams. You can find details on our workshop series and register your place below.
