The University Academic Skills Centre, located in the University’s Main Library, supports all new undergraduate students to develop their mathematical, academic writing and general academic skills.
The Centre provides drop-in support sessions to help students to become better prepared for the mathematical components of their studies; plus sessions to help students improve their general academic skills and writing.
In addition to the drop-in support sessions the Centre has a comprehensive general academic skills and writing workshop programme.
