Student support

We help you achieve your personal goals, make the most of your skills, and realise your full potential while studying at University. The Personal Development Department (PDD) is staffed by our academic support staff who understand your concerns and will answer any questions you have either by email, over the phone or face-to-face in person.

Academic Skills Development

This support will help you develop across the two broad areas of academic writing and numeracy applied to practice. This support can be workshops and small group or individual tutorials, related to academic writing, critical analysis, literature searching skills, referencing and numeracy.

We are happy to discuss any aspects of your work that are causing you concern and to point you in the right direction.

There is also English language support if your first language is not English.

Personal development for learning

We have a dedicated 'Professional Navigator' who can help you to develop a Personal Development Learning Plan as part of your Continuous Professional Development.

This can help you meet your individual academic development needs with a range of modules and short programmes.
