ASK: Academic Skills

ASK provides free and individual advice on the skills required for academic study.

Our advisors deliver lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials at the request of academic staff and/or students. We can talk to you about:

  • Essay writing
  • Planning, researching and writing dissertations
  • Giving presentations
  • Successful group work
  • Time management and prioritising
  • Efficient reading and note making
  • Critical reflective practice
  • Citation, referencing and avoiding plagiarism
  • Using referencing tools

Our StudyHub site provides a directory of resources to support study. You can also discover more services which support learning and how we work together.

If you are on campus, our calendar is your link to find out about weekly events, taught sessions and drop-ins during term time.

We offer individual support and advice about how to develop your writing but, please note, we are not able to offer a proof reading service.

All our services are available at Falmouth, Penryn and online.
