What we offer

Drop-ins are open to all University of Bedfordshire students, free to attend and offered on a first-come first-served basis. We will always see as many students as possible each day. We are open between the advertised times but at peak periods may have to close our queue early to make sure everyone can be seen.

If the Study Hub team member running the drop-in thinks that your enquiry will take more than 20-30 minutes to resolve they will arrange an appointment for you with a specialist Academic Skills Tutor/Trainer, Academic Liaison Librarian or Computer Skills Trainer.

What can we help with?

The following are some examples of areas that we can help with:

  • Assignment writing, planning and editing
  • Researching
  • Referencing
  • Note-taking
  • Reading
  • Presentation skills
  • Self-management
  • ICT
  • Exam technique

What we can't do

Study Hub team members cannot write assignments for you or proofread your work but we can help you to become more efficient and effective in your writing and proofreading.
