If you are, make sure you find out what the Learning Development team can offer. Learning Development is able to assist students who need a bit of help to adjust to the British university system. So, wherever you are from, whatever your subject discipline and whether you are undergraduates or postgraduates, visit Learning Development and make use of the variety of services available, including one-to-one tutorials, drop-in advice, reading and writing ‘spaces’, maths, science and stats support, and events.
“Wow! This British system is freaking me out!”; “I’ve never had to structure an essay in my life!” ; “What’s going to happen to my Grade Point Average?”; “I just don’t know what is expected of me over here!” These are just some of the comments made by Study Abroad students who come to see the Learning Development team.
The team understands the particular differences in academic culture and the challenges that Study Abroad students face and can offer advice and support tailored to individual situations.
Study Abroad students are hard-working, high-achieving students, who know their subject well, but find that academic study and expectations are different here in the UK. Not better, not worse, just different.
So, if you’re a Study Abroad student, why not check out the website at www.learningdevelopment.qmul.ac.uk, email firstname.lastname@example.org or come along to see the team on the first floor of the library at Mile End? Learning Development offer a variety of services including one-to-one tutorials, drop-in advice, reading and writing ‘spaces’, maths, science and stats support, and events. All are free of charge and we are always happy to help.
