Tutorials

Tutorials are bookable appointments whereby you can spend time with a tutor on more in-depth queries. For example, you may want some more guidance regarding the structure of your dissertation or would like to understand feedback from an assignment. Tutorials can be undertaken in person or online. Academic skills tutorials are 30 minutes and maths and statistics are an hour. You are permitted to book one appointment a week to enable others to use the service. Appointments are open two weeks in advance of each appointment time.

If there are no suitable appointment slots available, you can email Learning Development and suggest a time and date that would suit your studies and be offered an online tutorial. Alternatively if you have a quick query you can attend our drop-in service.
