2. Reading and study skills

Drop-in

Do you have any short, specific questions about academic writing or study strategies? Or do you just want to know what help is available from the Academic Support Centre? Bring your questions to our digital drop-in! 

You can join our drop-in every Tuesday from 11:30–12:30 until 31 May. Each drop-in consultation can last up to 15 minutes.

To be able to join our drop-in sessions, you will first need to log in to LU Zoom. You can find information on how to do this in the University’s student guide for Canvas (‘Using Canvas’).
