One-to-one sessions

Student page

We run a variety of one-to-one tutorials with our experienced team of academic lecturers, study skills tutors and professional writers.

Students are currently limited to a total of two sessions during the Summer break.

Only one booking can be made at a time. If you book more than one appointment, your first appointment will be kept and any subsequent bookings will be automatically cancelled.

Sessions can be booked one week in advance. If you need to cancel or reschedule, you must do so at least 48 hours in advance of your appointment.
