Helen Boswood

Learning Development Manager


I manage the Learning Development team and coordinate our provision across the University. My areas of special interest are teaching academic writing and English for Academic Purposes.

The Learning Development team offer a range of opportunities for students at all levels to develop their own study practices and skills through embedded teaching sessions in collaboration with academic staff, bespoke workshops, one-to-one tutorials, drop-ins, mentoring schemes and interactive online resources and study guides. We teach academic writing, critical thinking, reading, referencing, dissertation skills, and maths and statistics. We also advise on study issues such as exam anxiety, time management and motivation.

You can find our online resources and details of our workshops, one-to-ones and drop-ins on the Learning and Skills Development website.
