At the moment the Learning Enhancement Team is offering support online or by phone.
We can help you to write in the appropriate academic style using vocabulary suitable for your subject area so that you can communicate effectively in different academic contexts. We can also support you with the mathematics, statistics or numeracy that you need in your university course or to prepare for employment.
We can help you in person in tutorials, workshops or drop-in sessions. We also have a range of online resources to help you develop your skills.
Gemma Wilkinson and Faith Dillon-Lee are the Academic Writing and Language Lecturers for the School of Health and Education.
Based in the Learning Enhancement Team (LET) in the Sheppard Library, they can help you excel in your academic communication, whether this is in written assignments or oral presentations, as well as using information effectively and ethically in your work. They also teach maths, stats and numeracy skills.
You can also book 1-to-1 tutorials with them, get written feedback on your work or sign up for LET workshops (links below).
The ability to write essays and reports, write a dissertation or project, give presentations and participate in academic discussions are just some examples of the many types of communicative skills you will develop during your time at University. These skills will help with your employability too!
We are here to help you get a head start in all of these skills through our AWL Open Workshops.
The Writing Advice Drop-in is an active open learning space which aims to develop you as a writer. Come along to engage with us and others in discussing your writing.
Monday to Friday 12 Noon - 3pm

You don't need to book – you just need to turn up!
Reading is a common part of university life - and if you want to do well at university, you can't escape doing a lot of reading; and unfortunately, some of the texts you'll need to read at university can sometimes be "challenging"! However, there are ways to develop your reading skills to make reading less challenging and more enjoyable.
