Getting Ahead – Booking your study skills support

If you received Specialist One to One Study Skills support at the University of Worcester last year, now is the time to book your support for next year.

This support was the most highly rated among the student support we delivered in 201819 according to our DDS annual survey, so making sure you have this in place now for the week you start back is likely to be a great help.

How do I set up my support?
Firstly you will need your academic timetable for next year.

Then, if you received support from a Specialist Academic Support Tutor (SAST) last year, contact them now to book an appropriate time for your sessions during 201920.
If for some reason you did not take up your support last year but want to get this in place for 201920, you can book to see a Disability Adviser by contacting firstpoint on 01905 54 25 51 or email
