A new approach to your Academic Learning Development support

A new approach to your Academic Learning Development support

Your academic success is central to what we do and in 2018 you will be able to access Academic Learning Development support in more places - both at North Holmes Campus in Laud and Augustine House via the i-zone.

Academic Learning Development provide online support, workshops and one to one advice to help you improve and enhance your study skills including  - referencing; critical analysis; essay, dissertation, and reflective writing.

From January 2018 the Academic Learning Development and Academic English Service desk, currently located in Augustine House, next to the Library Point, will move. The specialist advice provided by your Academic Learning Advisors will still be available, but accessed through the i-zone desks. And you can still contact them direct on learner@canterbury.ac.uk as well as attend one of their many workshops held throughout the year.

The plan is to eventually use this space in Augustine House more effectively, providing you with the extra study areas on the ground floor that we know you would like.  

All the Study Skills support   you need at the click of a mouse!
