  • Then you will be taken to the booking form
  • Find a date and time that suits you. Please note that we can only provide one session per student as spaces are limited.
  • Enter your name and email into the appropriate cell to book.

  • A tutor will contact you by email to find out how they can help you.

Please note

  • You will be invited by your tutor to submit the written work you wish to discuss in advance.
  • We advise on aspects of style or structure, but are not subject specialist tutors, so we cannot advise on content.
  • We focus on your draft rather than editing or correcting completed or submitted assignments.
  • Whilst we can help you to improve for the next assignment, we cannot offer an opinion on marks given by tutors.

More study development services

We also offer a number of alternative study development services that are available for all levels of study.

Plus, there’s specific support for those with a disability, learning difficulty, health conditions or impairments that may affect your studies and wellbeing.
