Subject-specific tutors and resources

Subject-specific learning development tutors and coordinators are there to provide study skills help to students in their own subject area.

If you are looking for help with a particular area of your academic studies or would like to improve your effectiveness as a student, you should first check your school or department’s Moodle page or webpage (see below). These have a wealth of online resources that you can use as an aid to your studies. If you are looking for face-to-face help, please check for upcoming workshops or contact the learning development team to ask about one-to-one sessions.
