Guidance and support

 

University is full of opportunities for volunteering, playing sport for fun or competitively, trying out a new hobby, or getting involved in politics for the first time, but at the end of the day, there’s one thing that unites every student: studying! Luckily, there’s lots of resources out there to help you every step of the way and make sure that you make the most of it and that you run into as few problems as possible throughout your time at Strathclyde.

If something serious comes up that you anticipate is going to impact your ability so submit work on time, then the first step is to follow the Personal Circumstances Procedure to raise this. At the same time, you should inform the lecturer or member of staff responsible for the affected class to let them know what’s happened and to request some more time for your submission.

Learner Development Services

The Learner Development Services team work with students, offering advice and guidance to help you to be the best student you can be and to support you in developing the skills you need to navigate through the world of academia.

There's also support to students who need a bit of help or guidance with mathematics that come up in their courses. They aim to support students in developing their maths knowledge and skills, their confidence in applying this and you can get help with topics that you are struggling with or need a refresher on and to get feedback on assessments.

They offer one to one appointments, workshops, and materials that you can access yourself on a range of different topics including:

  • Academic writing;

  • Reading and note taking;

  • Assessment and feedback;

  • Exam preparation;

  • Critical analysis.

They are a great resource for someone who’s new to study, returning to study after a long break, or who just needs a refresher of their skills.

You can make an appointment by emailing learner-development@strath.ac.uk or visiting their webpage for more information or to arrange and appointment.
