Academic Advice

During your time at University, you may need advice about an academic issue. The Students' Union can advise and guide students through the University’s academic regulations. The Students' Union Education Officer can support and represent students facing fitness to practice, allegations of plagiarism (unfair practice) or a disciplinary due to misconduct at University hearings. All advice and the use of our services are confidential within the Students' Union.

Please note that these web pages only provide general guidance on academic support and University policy. It should not be regarded or relied upon as a complete or authoritative statement of University policy or procedures.

Handy hints:

  • ENJOY IT! It will be the quickest years of your life.
  • Go to assignment writing workshops, “once you get your essay writing down it’ll make second and third year so much easier”
  • During lectures, take notes and don’t rely on Moodle. It will help the information more memorable (Not all lecturers put the information on Moodle)
  • Ask Questions! Challenge your lecturers and learn more.
  • Set up meetings with your tutors and get feedback, discussion and tips on how to progress your work. “Go to your tutor with your ideas and you will get better, more personal feedback”
  • Join or create an academic society
  • Talk to your Course Reps – giving your feedback on the course you do can help improve your academic experience and success!
  • Write down all your assignment deadlines and know when they are
  • Don’t Forget: Everyone needs to rest and socialise so why not do it through sport!
  • Organise your time effectively
  • Go to your lectures and be sure not to miss out on the important stuff
