Help in person for taught students

One-to-one appointments

Skills@Library offers one-to-one support to taught students on a wide range of topics including academic writing, finding information and maths. Our experienced learning advisors can help you to develop your academic skills and strategies through the following services.

One-to-one academic skills appointments

We offer appointments on Monday to Friday, 9.30am – 4.30pm.

To request an appointment, please complete our online request form. Alternatively you can phone 0113 343 4096 during our office opening hours.

If you are unable to come into the Library to see us, we now offer online appointments as an alternative. Please specify "online" in the special requirements box at the bottom of the online form. If you are a distance learner, please also state this in the special requirements box.

At busy periods you might need to wait for an appointment to be scheduled, so unfortunately we cannot offer a quick fix for assignments with a deadline approaching. We usually require two working days to prepare for your appointment.

We are committed to the University Union's Proofreading Policy and therefore do not provide a proofreading service.

International students can also get support from the Language Centre on academic reading, writing and speaking. Courses and one-to-one appointments are available.
