Inform students about learning and language support
The Student Academic Success (SAS) team formed in January 2021. In this short time, a team of expert learning and academic language advisers has been established and are offering language and learning consultations for students.
About 200 students a week across the University are currently booking in. Their reasons for booking, in this order, are to gain support for their 1) assignments, 2) academic writing, 3) study skills, 4) time management and 5) academic English.
Relationship-building sits at the heart of the service where advisers offer effective support to students once they book in. Learning advisers maintain connections with students and, where possible, will support them over the course of their study. Specialist advising is available to students too, if needed.
Academic English support can also be developed through a series of workshops and online materials. Students are encouraged to book in for the workshops which are starting now.
Let students know about the learning supports available to them. Let SAS help you to help your students thrive in their unit or course. To book an advising session, students can visit the Learning and language support page and select Book a consultation.
