TLC Support for Students

The Teaching and Learning Centre works with academic, library, and other support colleagues as well as the Students Union to provide a range of resources to improve the student experience. The main hub for resources and support for students is located on the TLC Student Hub on Blackboard.

Examples of recent initiatives with the Students’ Union include Ask and Answer sessions, our ‘Hear to Help’ campaign to share practical advice with students during COVID-19, and the March to Exams online study sessions to help students study together online in supervised sessions.

In addition we offer the following academic supports to students:
