To enable all students to reach their potential, we provide learning support throughout the time in College. All students on undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes are allocated a personal tutor who is available to give support and advice if needed. Students meet regularly with their tutors individually or in groups. Students use the online Virtual Learning Environment and receive induction sessions in its use.
Many of our students have been out of education for a number of years, or have not studied at degree level before. All undergraduate students can attend study skills sessions at the start of their time at College, and further one to one support is also available.
Students who have been assessed as having specific learning or other needs may access further support if this is needed. All our university-validated programmes are designated for Disability Support Allowance. Please ask us for further details.
You can read our Additional Needs Policy here.
Support is provided in the following areas:
- Study skills (including reading and note-taking)
- Academic writing (including how to reference)
- Research skills (in conjunction with the library)
- Critical thinking (including structuring an argument)
Targeted support is available for students with additional needs resulting from disability or learning difficulties.
