Academic support

Study Abroad Academic Directors

Each department has a Study Abroad Academic Advisor (SAAD) and a dedicated Study Abroad/Erasmus+ administrator who are there to help and support you. You will probably meet them during the first week of term, and you will be given a full contact list for the SAADs and administrators in each department at orientation.

Study Skills service

The University’s Study Skills service is there to help you develop and enhance your academic skills. They offer online, interactive resources that you can use any time on a mobile, tablet or desktop. They also run regular one-to-one, drop-in tutorials and small-group workshops, all of which cover a wide range of study skills, including:

  • Academic writing and avoiding plagiarism;
  • Critical thinking;
  • Using feedback for success;
  • Exam and revision techniques;
  • Presentation skills;
  • Time management and work planning.
