Learner Development Services

Learner Development Services (LDS) work with students and staff to support useful learning and research excellence. We do this through one-to-one consultations, classroom-based activities, drop-in tutorials, and online resources.

We offer advice on a range of academic practices, including:

  • Mathematics and statistics
  • Writing for assessments and research
  • Organisation and time management
  • Reading and notetaking
  • Critical analysis and evaluation
  • Exam preparation and performance

We do not offer proofreading services but we can support students and researchers to develop their reviewing and editing practices.
