Book online for an Academic Skills appointment.

Need an 121 appointment?

It is sensible wherever possible to make an appointment with the lead contact for your subject area, Sometimes slots may not be available when you need them. If this happens, try making an appointment with your additional contacts. In the event there is still no suitable availability, 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 an hour's personal tuition. Quick discussions of 15 minutes are also available.

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

NoteIf you need a face to face appointment, please email the staff member to check their individual availability. Please do not use the online system to arrange face to face meetings.
