Study Advice Sessions

Study Advice Sessions for Academic Skills, Academic Writing & Maths Skills

These sessions are available for you to discuss, on a one-to-one basis, how you can develop and improve your learning. Specialist sessions are offered for students with dyslexia and/or other specific learning differences.

We do not work specifically on assignments yet to be submitted, except to give general advice, but we can look at marked work with the feedback. We discuss feedback carefully in order to devise strategies for future assessments. Please note that we do not offer a proof-reading service.

To arrange a Study Advice Session, please either submit a Study Advice Session Request Form or email sls@abdn.ac.uk, giving us the topic (e.g. academic writing, time management, maths skills) you wish to discuss and times/days that you would be able to come for an appointment.
