Academic Skills support

Writing for an academic audience is quite different to the writing you might be used to, and it can be tricky to adjust to this new and complex writing style. If you want to improve your academic writing, chat to our on-site Academic Skills staff who can help you with format, tone, and style of academic writing.

Maths and Stats support

Understanding maths and stats concepts and their applications can be challenging and even a bit scary. Chat to our Maths and Stats staff to get help with the key maths and stats skills needed in any discipline or course.

Library support

Researching, managing information and creating your reference lists can be among the most important skills to master during your University career. Chat to a librarian for one-on-one advice on searching and finding articles, books and other digital resources to help with your assignments. Use the right tools for citing and organising your information and data.
