The aim of the Summer School is to support students making the transition into Higher Education and to help develop a range of study skills. This may benefit a wide variety of students such as those making the transition from school or further education; students who have interrupted their studies and mature students who have been out of education for a long time. Information regarding dates and availability for the summer school is sent directly to students.

Some of the mini-courses that have run in the past include:

  1. Progression for All - An E-Resources tool. Using information effectively and ethically
  2. Effective Note Taking
  3. Harvard Referencing and Citation
  4. English for Academic Purposes
  5. Difference between FE and HE.  Assessments: assignments, essays, reports, exams
  6. IT Skills for HE
  7. Introduction to Work Based Learning for HE students


Helping you to achieve

There is a wide variety of support available for all students.

The Drop in Centre based in the Learning Resource Centre (LRC), is open to all students who would like some advice and guidance about any aspect of their coursework, for example research skills, proofreading, structuring an essay.

There is also the HE Research Group where students can learn effective study skills strategies and support each other in a friendly relaxed environment.

For students with specific learning difficulties, disabilities or mental health issues, the Additional Learning Support team can provide advice and support relating to your studies before and during your time in Higher Education.  The types of support offered depends on individual circumstances and, for those eligible for the  Disabled Students Allowance, the support may include 1:1 study skills tuition, or support with note-taking.
