Higher Education Learning Support

Higher Education Learning Support offers development of study strategies and guidance on disability support. All students are welcome to discuss support to help you make the transition to studying at degree level.

Studying at university level is a bit different to college or school and Higher Education Learning Support offers small group and individual support to help you adjust. Just drop in to one of our regular lunchtime workshops – there's no need to book.

We can help you to:

  • Make effective notes
  • Understand assignment guidelines and criteria
  • Write reports
  • Structure essays
  • Understand how to research and reference
  • Give spoken presentations and develop presentation skills
  • Manage your time and learn organisational skills
  • Revise and learn exam techniques
  • Brush up on grammar, spelling and punctuation.

Study skills resources are also available on Moodle and support can be online as well as face to face.

Accessing support

We encourage you to tell us about your particular needs when you apply. This information helps us to make the right arrangements for you and provide the best possible support, making sure that your experience at Moulton College is a positive one.

Once you are at the College you can find the Service on the first floor of the Learning Hub, behind the book collection.

Help for dyslexic students and students with disabilities includes:

  • Free dyslexia screening
  • Dyslexia assessments on campus with a qualified assessor
  • Individual study skills support with dyslexia qualified tutors (usually funded through Disabled Students' Allowance)
  • Exam and assessment support
  • Assistive software on student access computers across the campus.
  • Practical help to apply for the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA)
  • Individualised support recommendations and liaison with academic tutors

Further information for students with disabilities and on DSA is available here:

The HE learning support has helped me a lot this past year when doing assignments and improving my learning techniques. Caroline has also helped me with my dyslexia and I have had continued support with this through to my second year.
