Throughout your student journey, you will be developing a range of academic skills, which may be new to you and sometimes challenging. These include researching, referencing, critical thinking, academic writing, maths and statistics.
We are here to support YOU and your skills development throughout your student journey. You will engage with our induction activities to raise your awareness of the skills you already have, and to understand how they are relevant to your study. We will also work alongside your lecturers to provide workshops, drop-ins, and one-to-one tutorials to help you complete your assignments.
Your voice lies at the heart of what we do.
We are welcoming, friendly, approachable, and we are experienced in working with disabled students and students with learning differences. To feel come comfortable within DMU community you also can take part in our mentoring and peer learning programmes.
Academic skills support is provided by Subject Librarians, the Centre for Learning and Study Support, and the Maths Learning Centre. Not all universities offer this range of support, and it is valued by our students. This may be something you wish to consider when choosing your place of study.
Our workshops, tutorials and drop-ins will be offered face-to-face in a physical space, as well as online, once we are able to do so safely and within Covid-19 guidelines.
