Learning Advisers work across the University to provide students with help and support for academic work. They are a friendly bunch of people with expertise in university assessment expectations and academic culture.

A day in the life of a Learning Adviser includes…

  • Talking to students by phone, email or online to answer their queries
  • Providing useful resources and advice to students
  • Teaching academic skills in different courses at the request of academics
  • Referring students to other experts who may be able to help them.

Get in touch with a Learning Adviser as soon as you feel you are frustrated with an assignment or studies, or if you feel you are not progressing the way you hoped.

A Learning Adviser can help you:

  • Understand your assignment task by breaking it down into smaller parts
  • Create an essay or report plan, or concept map, to follow as you write
  • Strategise ways to improve your exam revision, note-taking, developing your argument, critical thinking, paragraphing and oral presentations.
