And much more!
Study Support aims to help all students realise their full potential. If you feel that you need some help to develop your study skills, you can see one of our mentors. Our mentors can help you to improve the following skills:
- Essay planning
- Proof reading
- Revision planning / strategies
- Time management
- Organisation – files, workload
- Spelling strategies – helpful for learning definitions
If you have or are concerned about a learning difference, for example, dyslexia or dyspraxia, Study Support can help with screening and follow up assessment to identify appropriate support in the classroom and examinations. PLEASE NOTE: We do not diagnose any learning needs at college. For a diagnosis, please consult your Health Provider.
