About students

We understand student learning. Within the team we have a range of expertise about the ways students learn. Our knowledge includes student identity and belonging, student experience and engagement, academic writing practices and social learning spaces. We are research led and have active involvements with national professional networks for Learning Development as well as Peer Learning.

For students

We work for students, by delivering teaching sessions tailored to their needs and disciplines in a way they can understand. We also offer individual tutorials where students can receive individual attention as well as producing digital resources for independent and distance study. 

With students

We help student workers to develop their understanding, knowledge and experience to support their peers and provide a community and sense of belonging.

Staff and students can find out more by visiting the Student Learning Services site (log-in required).
