Finding out about the services we offer
At Staffordshire University each school is supported by members of the Academic Skills team. This team includes subject librarians, study skills tutors and IT consultants. Since we operate on a subject or discipline basis, different members of the Academic Skills team team will be the contacts for specific course at each partner institution. This means that if more than one school runs courses at your institution, there may well be more than one contact. Check our
Meet the team page for details of Academic Skills team members. If you are unsure who is the contact you need then email us at email@example.com to find out!
