    Book a tutorial

    Please call, email or visit us stating:

    • Whether you would like an appointment for study skills, mathematics or statistics.
    • What issues you would like the session to address, eg planning, being critical, analysing data, etc.
    • Which campus you would like to see someone on (see our opening times for what is available where).
    • If you would like to be seen in a quiet/private room, please make this request when booking. This may not always be possible but we will do our best to accommodate this.

    We will then reply offering you an appointment slot as close to your appointment time as possible. Please do not ignore this email but respond as quickly as possible letting us know whether you can attend the time offered or would prefer another time.

    Appointments are also available by Google Meet.
