Skills for learning
We deliver academic practice and English language workshops to maximise your potential and provide specialist study materials through our libraries, Learning Resources Centre and our online Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Moodle site
Skills for Learning
The Skills for Learning team, through workshops, drop-ins and one-to-one sessions, can help you develop your academic and professional capabilities so that you can reach your full potential. We offer Academic Practices and English Language provision such as critical thinking, essay writing and grammar and Maths and Stats provision, for example, drug calculations, numerical reasoning and basic algebra.
For further details about our provision please visit Skills for Learning on MyLSBU.
Language support for international students
The English language you use in higher education can be very different from the English language you have learnt at school or college. To help you develop academic English proficiency, come to a workshop or drop-in session. Alternatively, there is a pre-study academic English course you can take in the months before you join us. Find out more about our Pre-sessional English course.
Libraries on our Southwark and Havering campuses provide LSBU students with access to a wide range of books, journal articles and other specialist materials they will need to complete their studies. E-resources – including over 18,000 full-text journals – can be accessed off-campus 24 hours a day. A team of experienced, professional staff is on hand to give expert support and provide training. Contact the Perry Library on 020 7815 6669.
IT support is based in the Learning Resources Centre on our Southwark campus. Here, students have free access to computers – both PCs and Macs – and to software that underpins their course work and research. Specialist software is also available in some departmental labs. Expert IT help and training is provided throughout the year. For advice call our Learning Resources Centre on 020 7815 6678 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
