Improve your IT Skills

Our experts will guide you through the range of Information Technology (IT) resources available, both throughout the university and off-campus.  They can help you choose the best IT resources for your assignments, aid your preparation for the perfect presentation, or simply show you how to construct your essay for maximum impact.

Programming support
We also offer small group (maximum four students) sessions in programming support. These sessions cover basic programming concepts such as code syntax, code structure, programming standards, program logic and debugging. The sessions are intended to be generic rather than programming language specific, although application to some specific programming languages can be covered by prior arrangement. 

Further details about this and our maths support provision are available
