Student Learning Service

In-course Workshops

We are pleased to collaborate with Academic Staff who wish to increase the learning strategies provision within their courses. In-course workshops can include but are not limited to critical thinking, academic writing and presentation skills. If you would like to discuss these and/or any other topics, please contact us at sls@abdn.ac.uk.

How we work with students in individual Study Advice Sessions

All Study Advice Sessions are confidential unless the student elects otherwise. When working on academic writing with undergraduate and taught postgraduate students, we only look at marked work. We go through feedback carefully with the student in order to devise strategies for future writing. In advance of submission of assignments we give general advice on research and structure but will not edit or proof-read text.

Recommending the Student Learning Service

We are happy for you to recommend our Academic Skills Workshops or individual Study Advice Sessions to students. Study Advice Sessions are available for all students and include academic development for academic writing, maths and for students with dyslexia and other specific learning differences.

Please note, however, that students cannot be compelled to access our service. Please refer students to this website; by clicking on the links to Workshops and Study Advice Sessions they will find details and booking forms.
