Free eBook scheme

We understand that higher education is a big investment, so we have committed to offering an eBook scheme in partnership with BibliU to include core textbooks as part of your tuition fees.

Academic Writing Service

The Academic Writing Service is a resource available to students of all levels to develop their academic writing and English language skills. The tutor can offer individualised assistance and advice on assignment structure, argumentation, style and technical accuracy; on how to write in any of the range of forms required on a course, such as the essay, report, presentation, proposal and poster; and on how to plan, research and reference. Specialist help is also available for those students whose first language is not English.

Students can arrange 1-1 consultations with the academic writing tutor, email their work to the tutor to receive feedback on assignment drafts, and have access to a wide range of online resources, as well as to a suite of workshops for academic writing and for English as an additional language.
