Helping you to fulfil your potential and succeed means treating you as an individual, and acknowledging your specific needs. From learning at a new level to juggling deadlines and managing your own workload, there are lots of new skills to learn at university. If you're feeling challenged by your work, we have a range of specialist support services on hand, and these include:

  • workshops that cover key academic skills such as writing, maths etc., and other areas such as revision, time management, dissertation support etc.
  • one-to-one mentoring sessions, to discuss your specific needs
  • online resources like Skills for Success and NOW — keeping all your course details at your fingertips

Our libraries

As well as providing all the books and study resources that you'll need, our libraries are peaceful places to study — on your own, or together with your friends and course mates. Our expert teams will help you with whatever support you need — whether that's locating books, providing assistive equipment for disabilities, hosting workshops, or offering one-to-one sessions and mentoring.

Throughout term-time, our libraries are open 24/7. We've recently upgraded our service, meaning you'll have access to more PCs, study spaces and specialist support than ever before. Visit our Library section for more details on the facilities and support we offer.
