Academic Learning Support

The Academic Learning Support team is here to help you develop your skills so that you can learn more effectively.

The range of help includes:

  • Study skills, such as reading strategies and essay planning
  • Writing skills, including critical writing
  • Meeting the assessment criteria of your assignment
  • Time management
  • Revision and exam techniques
  • and much more

We offer one-to-one academic skills tutorials, by appointment, to all City students. To book one of these sessions, please go to the Learning Success reception in the Student Centre on level 2 in the University Building (B) at Northampton Square. Alternatively, please telephone 020 7040 0246 or email

In addition, group workshops are held throughout the year on a range of study skills topic. These sessions are open to all students. There is no need to book. The full programme for the Academic Skills workshops is here and you can find the handouts on our moodle course here.

Please seek help with plenty of time to meet assignment deadlines. Please note that the Academic Learning Support team does not provide a proof-reading service, which means we cannot check your grammar and spelling or make extensive editorial suggestions. This is to ensure the authorship of the work is not compromised and academic integrity upheld. Students should carry out their own proof-reading as part of the final stage of producing a piece of written work. Students should also consult their own school on its policy with respect to the use of proof-readers and ensure they adhere to the relevant rules and guidance.
