Yes you can. If I'm not the person to answer your query I'll point you in the right direction. You can also contact the Student Information Point on 0161 247 1779 or email@example.com to ask for help or advice.
Don't worry about this; no query is too small and there's no such thing
as a silly question. However, if you're stuck and you need help quickly
you might be able to find what you're looking for in the new Skills
Online resource on Moodle. This resource includes sections on writing
essays and reports, time management, referencing, presentations and

No, I don't proof read your work, but I will look at it with you and advise you on how to edit it.
Yes, definitely. A fresh pair of eyes may be able to highlight areas for improvement, and help you see what your subject tutors are looking for.
Of course. There is a lot to take on board in postgraduate study, especially if you come from a working background and it is a long while since you studied.
Not unless you want me to. The service is confidential. It is often useful to talk to unit leaders to make sure I am not giving conflicting advice, but I can do this without identifying you personally. I collect information about users of my service in the form of statistics and generalised patterns and trends, but you cannot be identified individually.
Yes of course, I'm here for any student of the University who
wants advice on study issues. However, I do not offer tuition in English
as a Foreign Language. If it is your
English language that is causing problems you should contact ELSIS (See English Language for International Students)
Unfortunately not. For help with maths contact the maths support centre on firstname.lastname@example.org. You should also speak to your tutor about additional help with maths.
The service is completely confidential and non-judgemental, so if you just need to get something off your chest that's absolutely fine. I can provide information and contact details for various services, both within the university and the local area, which may be useful to you. However, it is not a counselling service, and if you would like to speak to a counsellor please contact the university counsellors on 0161 247 3493.
If you want to discuss a piece of work it's also useful to bring your work, assignment brief and unit Handbook with you. If you want to focus on improving your work it is useful to bring any feedback you have received from your tutors.
Yes. If you have doubts about your course you are welcome to discuss them in confidence. There are a number of options available to you which I am happy to discuss.
