(Study Skills) Consultation

Description

A study skills consultation is available to all undergraduate and taught postgraduate students. For students who are unable to attend a face to face appointment, we can arrange online study skill consultations.

Study skills consultations are 30 minute one to one sessions with a Study Development Adviser. They can help students develop effective study strategies and enhance current study skills. The session could be used to discuss such things as (but not limited to): effective reading, time management, and dissertation or revision planning.

Please have in mind one specific study skill issue you wish to discuss: you will be asked to provide us with this when you book.

Study skills consultations will not cover:

  • Subject or discipline specific guidance
  • Proof-reading or editing of work
  • English language advice
  • Feedback on individual pieces of work

*** For on-campus appointments, please aim to arrive 5 minutes prior to your allocated slot. If you are more than 10 minutes late for your consultation, your appointment will be cancelled to ensure all consultations run on time***
