Learning Development is for all LUMS students, whether you are aiming high or finding university very challenging. We also provide consultation for staff seeking to redevelop their teaching approaches or to support individual students.

Our activities include:

  • guidance on any aspect of academic study for all students at open-access drop-ins
  • tailored one-to-one support for students referred by staff
  • the Maths and Stats Hub (MASH), run by Anna - a place to improve your quantitative skills: see the MASH Moodle site for details
  • one-to-ones with our team of writing mentors in the Academic Writing Zone
  • English language development opportunities in One-Stop English, where students who speak English as an additional language can drop in to practise their speaking, listening and writing in a friendly space
  • further opportunities for LUMS students to develop their English for Academic Purposes – see the EAP Moodle site for more details
  • teaching sessions and resources on all aspects of academic study and writing practices, both programme-based and open-access
  • employment and volunteering opportunities for students on our student-led peer mentoring schemes, including LUMS Leading Lights
  • the Learning Development Study Blog, a platform for student bloggers to reflect on and share their study-related experiences

All our activities, including resources and how to book, can be accessed through the LUMS Learning Development Moodle site.
