Academic Skills support for students

(15 October 2020)

The Academic Development for Students team has had a very good take-up of classes for the live online academic skills classes this term, ranging from improving academic writing to time management. For all taught sessions, students can access a recording of the full session  or in some cases a summary of the session  through our DUO page. Also on our DUO page, students might find our academic reading and notetaking resources helpful. To access these from our welcome page, they should click on ‘Class materials’ and then ‘Being productive’. To enrol on our DUO page, students should click on the ‘Academic Skills portal’ on the right under ‘Student Services’ when they log into DUO. For any queries, please contact

In addition to the classes, we offer both academic writing and maths and stats one-to-one support for all students. For information on all of our services, see our website for further details:
