How will I be supported in my learning?

Home / Help and advice / Support / Academic support / How will I be supported in my learning?

You can expect stimulating contact time that includes lectures, workshops, seminars and case studies. There is also a significant amount of time where you will be researching and studying on your own in preparation for assignments and exams. If you have individual queries or difficulties in certain subjects, you can book an appointment with your tutor, who will provide in-depth support and guidance.

From the start of the course, you will be allocated a personal tutor. You’ll meet your tutor at agreed times throughout each year of the course. Personal tutors encourage your personal development and are a useful point of contact for any queries about your course, extracurricular activities and issues where they can point you towards specialist services at the University. These include student counselling, wellbeingfinancial advice and chaplaincy / multifaith support.

You'll also be supported in your learning by the University Library, who provide: 

  • A wide range of online resources such as e-books, journals and the latest research outputs tailored to your study needs
  • Welcoming, flexible learning spaces on both campuses with 24/7 opening
  • Expert support online and on campus, including module-based skills sessions, assignment drop-ins, online support and 24/7 live chat help
  • Resources, skills and support wherever you are based: on campus, in UK partner colleges or worldwide study centres

The Library provides a range of skills for learning support sessions and resources, including improving your research skills, digital skills development, support with your assignments and dissertation and much more.
