Study Support

Doing an undergraduate degree is exciting but also demanding, so we provide a range of study support to help you find effective ways of learning that work for you.

Academic Tutors

Every undergraduate student is allocated an academic tutor, who is a faculty member in your department. They will be able to discuss your module choices and overall progress during your degree to help you reach your full potential.

Learning Development

There are a range of learning development opportunities available to support you throughout your studies. Rebecca Howarth offers workshops, one-to-one support, peer mentoring schemes and informal drop-in sessions. Dr. Anna Karapiperi offers a range of opportunities to help you excel at math and/or stats. The Learning Development team are based in LUMS. For more information, contact learningdevelopmentlums@lancaster.ac.uk.
