New Students

Academic Support from the ASE Team

  • It can take a while to get used to studying at university. You will have classes from a leading expert in your subject. But you won’t have a teacher telling you what to do, when and how, in the way you had at school. 
  • So you will need a new set of skills. The Academic Skills Enhancement team – ASE for short! – are ‘learning advisors’ who provide 1-2-1 and small group support for all new students throughout the first year. You and the people you study with can book tutorials to help develop a range of skills including:
  • Academic writing 
  • Effective reading 
  • Note-making and lecture skills 
  • Presentation skills 
  • Working in groups 
  • Exam and revision skills  
  • Time management 
  • Using feedback 
  • Referencing and Academic Integrity 
  • Assignments 

We want you to succeed so there is no limit on the number of times you can see us in your first year. In fact, we are taking questions already! Just login to our virtual class, say hello and fire away!
