Publishing MA: Learning support
How we can support you
We want to make sure you get all the support you need while you are with us. Here you can see the range of support we can offer you while you're doing this course.
You will be able to use the University's Careers Service and counselling service.
The Centre for Academic Support and Employability (CASE) provides extra support for students from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences who need help with study skills. For example, you might want to improve your writing, revision or assessment skills. Students who attend CASE tend to do better in their degree than those who don't.
Additional academic support
Tutors have set office hours so it's easy to get one-to-one help and support if required. When you join the course, you are assigned a personal tutor to help you throughout your time at the University. In addition, you can turn to individual module leaders or the overall course leaders.
StudySpace is an online learning management system which is a potentially limitless resource for lecture notes and interactive teaching including:
- access to course materials – such as lecture notes, backup materials, presentations and previous exam papers;
- online chatrooms and bulletin boards – so you can interact with staff and other students; and
- multimedia features – such as video tutorials.
Because you can use StudySpace from any internet-enabled computer at any time, you can choose when and where you study.
