Who Is This For?

Our student learning advisors provide help for:

All science, technology, health and medicine students:
If you know the Science but think you could pick up marks by improving your writing skills, why not come to one of our drop-in sessions? Sometimes lecturers may suggest that you seek advice about your assignment writing or another aspect of the way you study.
International students:
We have courses, workshops and drop-in sessions to help you with study, grammar and writing at Lancaster.
Disabled students:
If you think you have a disability that affects your study such as dyslexia, you may find it helpful to arrange a study consultation.

Materials on writing in science can be found on our Moodle site.
