University students are viewed as ‘independent learners’. However, being independent does not mean being left on your own.
Support from the Learning Institute
At The Learning Institute you will have support from your academic tutors, your module tutors and from a whole host of support staff and services, including:
- our student support manager, who helps to support students who have a disability, medical condition or Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) including dyslexia
- our registry officer, who can help with queries about mitigating circumstances or recognition of prior learning (RPL) and any other Registry questions
- our Academic Learning Resources team, who are on hand to help students access online library resources, offer tips for effective literature searches and support with general queries about referencing and ICT
