Study Zone

Launched in 2018/19, Study Zone is a new informal study space in The Forum for undergraduates and taught postgraduates, where they can:

  • seek personalised advice in 1-1 appointments
  • attend Writing Cafés
  • meet with their Peer Support and Change Agents groups
  • work independently or in small groups

Our advisers can help students to develop personal learning strategies and discuss specific questions relating to their work. Students can develop their skills as critical thinkers and writers, learn new tips for success, and improve their grades and exam performance.

If students can't make it in person or prefer to seek advice online, they can browse Study Zone Digital resources which are designed to support their studies at University.

What staff say:

This University prides itself on supporting student learning. The new Study Zone now aids students to receive tailored support towards achieving their learning and assessment goals. I know its creation will be very much appreciated by students, and tutors will welcome being able to encourage aspiring students to make use of it.
