Academic support

While a rounded education extends beyond the classroom, your studies will play a central in your time at university and we want to ensure you perform to your potential.

Whether you’re struggling with your workload, don’t fully understand the content, or just think your marks could improve but aren’t sure how, there are a range of people, places and programs that provide academic support. Our Student Advisors are experts in connecting you to support services.

Learning Development

Academic Skills, such as researching, independent study skills, writing, critical reading and problem solving/logical thinking, are essential for university, which can be a new and challenging experience.

Learning Development offers workshops, individual consultations and e-consultations, covering Study Skills, Academic Writing Skills, Maths and Stats and English language and access to online learning resources. The services are free, open to all current UON students, and include group workshops, face-to-face or phone appointments with dedicated Learning Advisers.
