Academic skills classes

The Academic Skills and Mentoring Team runs a series of classes to help undergraduate students get the grades they really want.

Mentor scheme

Many students coming to university will go through a transitional period where they must adapt to new ways of learning and teaching as well as living away from home, often for the first time. The mentor scheme aims to aid students with that transition.
