We understand that transition to a university life is a big step, this is why here at our London Campus we provide range of services to help you make the transition into student life as smooth as possible.

Our range of services are here to support you achieve your full potential.

Whether you are an international student looking for advice or guidance on living in the UK, need additional academic support, are looking for employment opportunities or are returning to studies after a long period of absence, our services have you covered.

On campus, your first point of contact should be our Ask4Help desk, located on the ground floor. Our helpful support staff can direct you to the right service.

 

The ACE Team

Our ACE Team is here to provide you with guidance on many aspects of academic life and achieve excellence in your course.

This includes helping to learn skills such as:

  • academic writing
  • referencing
  • presentations
  • research skills
  • critical reading and writing
  • group work
  • time management
  • maths and computing

There are three main ways that we support students:

  1. One-to-one tutorials
    Students can book appointments with us (online or face to face) where we can help to explain and practice key academic skills. We can also look at samples of your assignments and provide feedback (on the academic aspects e.g. writing style, referencing, not on subject specific content matters) or discuss an assignment brief if you are unclear how to tackle it.
  2. Workshops
    We run online workshops open to all students every semester. These are free to join and cover a wide range of skills. The sessions are interactive with participants completing small tasks to practice the skills being taught.
  3. ACE Blackboard page
    We have a dedicated ‘organisation’ on Blackboard where students can find our workshop schedule/slides/videos as well as a bank of self-access learning materials.

Our friendly team is available five days a week, in the breakout area on the ground floor (this is typical for term dates):

Tuesday 09:00 – 17:30
Wednesday 09:00 – 17:30
Thursday 10:30 – 19:00
Friday 09:00 – 17:30
Saturday 09:00 – 17:00

Note: Due to the Corona Virus pandemic, ACE is currently offering online-only WebEx appointments to develop your academic skills.

To book appointments students can send an email to: ace.london@northumbria.ac.uk

Careers and Employability Support

Our Careers Team is here to help you with:

  • One-to-one practical support for preparing your CV or for interviews
  • Inviting graduate recruiters and employers for workshops/guest lectures
  • Identifying part-time work or internship opportunities

They are your first stop for your employability and work experience questions. To book an appointment, please use our Ask4Help service.
