Guided Independent Learning

The GIL service enables you to study on your own with the support and guidance of a tutor. You can use the INTO Learning Resource Centre - including its counselling service and its web-based resources. Essentially it is a 1-2-1 guidance service that supports nearly every aspect of your university work.

The GIL service has specific opening times detailed below. Please email us at the email address below with suggested dates, times, and the purpose of the meeting. We will then get in touch with you to confirm.  At the first appointment we will be able to work out an individualised study programme and then follow this up with subsequent appointments when you feel you want to.

You can make an appointment with a tutor by email.

We offer support in a number of areas:
You can also ask for a writing tutorial - please mention this in your email so we can allow a longer time. You must bring your text on a memory stick or send it by email in advance so we can look at it together on a computer.

Appointments are made on a strictly 'first come first served' basis. It would also help if you could think carefully about the kind of support you need.
