Book online for an Academic Skills appointment.

Need a 121 appointment?

It is sensible wherever possible to make an appointment with the lead contact for your subject area. 

However, sometimes slots may not be available when you need them. If this happens, you can book with anyone in the Academic Skills team who is available.

Go to and under Locations select Microsoft Teams and then choose Academic Skills and select the No preference option. Doing this will give you the greatest range of dates and times to book your 121 support.

Appointments are available Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 5.00pm.  

Several lengths of appointment are available. Standard appointments are 30 minutes. If it is your first appointment, or you feel you need more time, you may book an Extended appointment which will provide 50 minutes personal tuition. 

  • Choose the member of staff you want an appointment with.  
  • Click on the Book an Appointment button.  Follow the onscreen instructions.
