Our tutors offer confidential tutorials on all aspects of study skills at all levels from foundation to PhD. For example, we can help you to develop skills in planning and structuring your assignments, find your academic voice, improve your referencing, focus your dissertation, or manage your time. We do not offer proofreading, but we can help you to develop the ability to be critical of your own work and improve your writing.
You can see an Upgrade tutor in-person at Headington, Harcourt Hill, Marston Road or Swindon by prior appointment (see our opening times page for details of when we are visiting each campus). Most people come on their own but Upgrade tutors are also happy to run group sessions at the request of either staff or students. Appointments usually last between 30 and 40 minutes.
In semester time, we offer daily drop-ins for study skills queries from 12.30 to 1.30pm at the Headington Campus. Just turn up at our desk and someone will see you.
Study skills tutorials are free, friendly and confidential so call or email us for an appointment.
