Academic Tutors

Our academic tutors can help you with specific module content and with learning and developing key skills you need to make the most of your studies

Our Academic Tutors provide support to all undergraduate and postgraduate students in the Faculty of Technology.

We specialise in topics and modules of study specific to computing, engineering and maths, but we can also help you to develop your general academic skills.
