To help you build strong foundations for your studies here at UCLan, we have created a Learning Development Framework. This Framework identifies areas of the university which you may not initially be aware of, who can support your academic skills development, alongside your course’s academic staff. Please see the sections below for all the ways we can support you.
As a member of UCLan, you have access to lots of things to help you with your current and future development as a student and professional. Alongside this, you can understand what learning style works best for you and build your resilience to dealing with difficult things. Find out more.
Build your knowhow to search for and find the resources you need for your studies, and software to help you give your work a boost with referencing using RefWorks. Ask Your Librarian.
Access LinkedIn Learning and our Microsoft and Adobe training to build up your digital skills. We want to help you get the best grades you can and that starts with understanding the software you use.
WISER provides academic support to students, such as weekly writing workshops and support with feedback you have received on your assignment. Book onto one of our WISER workshops or come along to a 1-1 tutorial.
Peer Assisted Study Sessions are a well-established and internationally recognised means of helping first year students transition into University life, through support provided by students who are already here at UCLan.
Academic Advisors are academic members of staff whose role is to offer you academic advice and support by providing guidance or referral to appropriate services. If you are not sure who your Academic Advisor is, your Course Administration Service Hub (CAS Hub) or The <i> will be able to help.
Course Administration Service (CAS) hubs give front-line advice, support and guidance to students in respect of their course and provide administrative support to academic staff; this includes support for registration, module choices, maintenance of the student record and administration of the assessment boards.
