Our students are primarily supported to develop of their written and oral communication skills through activities and assessments forming part of their academic programme of study.

In addition academic skills development, including writing skills, is provided via online and in-person support from the Hartley library , and, for international students, through the Academic Centre for International Students .

For students with a specific learning difference, a programme of specialist support is offered via the Student Disability and Inclusion Team.

In addition, all students are given access to a range of IT tools which can support facility with written language, such as Office 365 (spelling and grammar tools), as well as self-paced online courses via Linkedin Learning (eg Grammar Foundations; Editing and proofreading made simple; Writing in plain English; Spelling punctuation and grammar).
