For students

Looking to improve your study habits or your academic writing? Whether you’re chasing a First or stressed about a re-sit, the Academic Skills team can provide advice and support in a variety of ways.

Workshops and tutorials

We have a programme of workshops and tutorials dedicated to key academic skills, from structuring essays and exam preparation to paraphrasing and critical analysis. These are open to students from every school and at every stage of their degree programme, undergraduates and postgraduates alike.

All are now available online, with some live, scheduled sessions, which allow for student interaction and questions, and some recorded tutorials, which are accessible at anytime. Details of the sessions available and booking instructions can be found on our myNapier pages.

Advice for individuals

Advice for individuals

We also offer academic skills advice on a one-to-one basis. Students can book Webex appointments to discuss their work, or they can request advice by email. Full instructions for accessing one-to-one guidance are on our myNapier pages.

If English isn’t your first language, or you’ve come to Edinburgh Napier from an education system outwith the UK, then you may benefit from in-session English for Academic Purposes (EAP) support. For more details, visit the relevant pages on myNapier.
