Academic Skills Enhancement (ASE) supports students in developing the skills they need to excel at university. ASE delivers the following student services:
- 1-2-1 tutorials
Although ASE focus on developing academic literacies such as writing, critical thinking, reading and note-making, and soft skills such as time management, group work and presentations, ASE can deliver most impact to students around their assessments coursework, revision and exam preparation.
ASE support students through transition and acclimatisation to university culture, particularly with rules and conventions around academic integrity. QMUL’s diverse and inclusive student intake can mean that a range of students can benefit from this orientation, beyond outmoded stereotype of ‘international’ or ‘widening participation’ students.
It should be noted that ASE does not directly support students with English language issues or specific learning difficulties (see Language Centre and Wellbeing respectively).
