Academic Skills Centre Online Resources

Our online resources provide essential information on a wide range of academic skills topics, including essay writing, revision techniques, time management, and your Adviser of Studies handbook. Look at these online resources first but if you don't find what you are looking for and need to speak with someone, use our Quick Query drop-in service or book an appointment with a tutor.

Drop-in service

If you have a quick question, our tutors offer a one-to-one quick query drop-in service at the City Campus and Fife Campus - no appointment required.

Book an appointment

Do you need help to improve your general academic skills or need guidance for your academic writing? 

We offer two types of bookable appointment:

  1. Book a one-to-one 30 minute appointment to help improve your general academic skills
  2. Book a one-to-one 50 minute appointment to help with your academic writing
    (Appointments are available from week beginning 11 September 2023)

You will be expected to have already consulted our online resources, with your one-to-one appointment providing further support or clarification.
