    We will do everything we can to make sure you succeed in your studies. And there are plenty of people you can talk to if you need a little expert guidance.

    To support your learning throughout your time at Brookes, we have specialists on hand who will provide advice and encouragement on everything from planning your work to statistical analysis.

    • Your own personal academic adviser - a member of teaching staff assigned to you when you start, to support your learning throughout your time here.
    • Student support co-ordinators within each subject area - a great source of advice for academic and personal issues.
    • Upgrade advisers - a university-wide study advice service if you need help with things like planning your work, improving your essay style, working with numbers or data.
    • Academic liaison librarians - subject librarians who provide training and support so you can track down the resources you need.
    • Peer-assisted learning helpers - often second and third-year students who run drop-in sessions.
    • Specialist dyslexia and disability advisers - offering one-to-one study skills support.
    • English language support academics - if English is not your first language.

    Brookes helped me break down the barriers that dyslexia was putting in the way of my learning. They taught me coping strategies as well as how to use assisted technology. From my experience, the one-to-one support offered by Brookes is second to none.

  • Extra support to boost your learning

    I succeeded because of all the effort I put in and the support of my teachers. At first I struggled a lot with maths but when I went to Dr Claudia Carillo for help she spent hours going through it with me. I attended all the surgeries and ended up passing maths with 91 per cent - one of my highest scores.
