Book a tutorial

You can access tutorials tailored to your learning needs and goals, and Study Development will work with you on a learning plan appropriate for you.

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.
