Because each learner has specific needs and learning styles, we provide a range of support options:
- One-to-one sessions with an expert writing mentor
- Regular, live study skills sessions (On-campus/Online)
- A suite of on-demand study skill resources
- Specialist support available for neurodiverse learners
- Ongoing support from your personal tutor and fellow learners.
- Postal access to the library for UK students and large online repository of learning resources
- Support from the Foundation Chaplain
Reasonable adjustments for study
As part of our commitment to student flourishing at Queen’s, we seek to make reasonable adjustments to student programmes, or create study pathways that take account of identified student needs and/or disabilities. Such adjustments might take a variety of forms, but could include recording of lectures, making teaching materials available in advance or creating a personalised learning plan that takes account of a student’s particular situation/need. Our Moodle VLE is also enabled with an accessibility block feature and we offer a programme of study skills for those new or returning to study (both in person and online).
We work closely with an external specialist tutor who independently supports many of our students with learning disabilities, and therefore is able to advise Queen’s on latest good practice and future developments in this area.
A staff-student widening access committee likewise meets regularly to make recommendations to the Foundation as to how access across our campus and our programmes might be enhanced.
