Study skills resources

Our study skills tutors can help you improve your existing skills and acquire new ones while you are a student at the University. You will benefit more if you can become as self-reliant as possible with regard to researching, planning and writing essays and reports, as these are key skills which are transferable to the workplace.

Here we provide links to a range of resources and downloads that can help both students with SpLDs and others to work more effectively.
