Study Support Drop-in Sessions

If you are looking for a quick word of advice on any area connected with your studies you can drop in to Room H1B27 in the Student Association Block, if the Learning Centre Advisor is not in a scheduled meeting. Discussions might cover writing techniques, reading strategies, presentation skills or any other aspect of study that you wish to explore. A 20 minute session may be all that is necessary to answer a query or solve a problem.

Please note:
Learning Centre consultations should be used to talk about writing for assignments, reports etc. This is not a proofreading service, nor should you expect to have your work done for you by the Learning Centre Advisor.
