What Students say about the Study Support Service

"The specialist tutors who work to help us are fantastic, they are needed very much.  I wish I could take them home as they are so helpful.  I feel that I have learnt so much, things which I never understood at school.  My life has been made so much easier as I have been given the skills which I had needed all my life.  I see a change in my planning (in my studies and everyday life), reading, writing and understanding many skills. I don’t waffle any more. Not just have I been given skills which I need but also confidence and an understanding that being dyslexic doesn’t mean you’re not clever.  My tutor tells me I doing very well, I’m intelligent, and is always making me feel good and positive.  Thank you."


"The help I’ve got to do with planning time has been great.  PDF writer is a really good software for it.  I’ve also had really useful help in breaking down essay questions and planning essays. I actually enjoy writing now.  Also, thanks a lot for help on Christmas revision plan and exam techniques to use my extra time effectively !"

"Thank you for all your help and patience with me and my thesis.  Your help with sorting out special arrangements for my viva made such an unbelievable difference. I have passed my PhD!  You are really wonderful.  It wouldn’t have happened without you and your colleagues in CDS.  I am now a Dr! Yeah!! I still can’t believe it !"

"When I first came to the university, I was overwhelmed by the work, not understanding what was required, how to structure the work and just generally really anxious about it.  The sessions have been extremely helpful, helping me put together the work and in understanding and structuring arguments correctly.  I’m not stressed now. After my first assignment, I was so pleased with result and I believe that it was because of the help I received in the sessions."

"This year I have used my study support appointments every week and my grades have vastly improved from my first year where I was regularly getting 2:2s. With the help I have received I have bumped up into the 2:1s and I even managed to get a 1st!!  These sessions are ­extremely important to me and my work, so don’t cancel them because they WORK!! Thanks for all the help!" 

"Brilliant resource!  Really helps me to start assignments with confidence.  I have noticed a lot of improvement within my written work of the time I have received support.  My vocabulary bank has expanded and my sentence structure improved.  I have found a structure/work method that suits my learning.  My organisation now is in a different league after just one term. All this would have been hard to achieve without my weekly support.  Thank you."
