Academic Skills Support in Exeter

Our comprehensive online resources are designed to help you develop a range of academic skills including essay writing, referencing, critical reading and getting the most out of lectures.

Throughout the academic year, our Academic Skills Advisers deliver workshops and lectures covering all academic skills from presentation skills to essay writing to project management depending on the needs of the discipline.  Look out for these within your discipline/college and on My Career Zone.

Writing Mentoring is a way of getting support with academic writing from a PhD student who is from your academic discipline or college.

Depending on the way the mentoring scheme is set up in your discipline, you can gain support individually, via small groups or larger groups.  Look out for these opportunities within your discipline or college.

As part of the 'Hidden Talent in Devon' project, 1-to-1 academic skills support is available for eligible undergraduate and postgraduate students on Streatham and St Luke's Campuses. Find out more by clicking here.
