Study skills support is available to all University of Wales Trinity Saint David students who need assistance with their studies.

Refine your study skills and achieve your best from foundation through to postgraduate level. Support is offered with researching, referencing, avoiding plagiarism. academic writing, critical thinking, presentation skills, planning and organisation, and exam revision. This support is designed to supplement but not replace the subject specific teaching and advice provided by your academic tutors.

We recognise that emotional support will be essential for you to maintain equilibrium and cope with every aspect of student life; sessions where this type of support is offered are identified on the campus timetables.

Distance learning students are also able to access the Study Skills Distance service.

Drop In study skills sessions are available during term time only.


Between 17 July and 21 August 2017 study skills will be by email contact only on the address above and between 10am and 12 midday on a Monday. These sessions will be with Marie Pitson who will also be available on Tuesday 29 August between 10 and 12 following the Bank Holiday Monday.
