Personal support and study plan

Maximise your success at LSBU: personal support and study plan

No one feels confident about all areas of academic and student life, and needs change as you progress through your studies. It's normal to want to find out more about different aspects of support. So, we've designed a personal Self-Assessment Support and Study Plan that will assist you during your time at LSBU.
You will be able to complete the plan once you have gone through your online enrolement. It will help you consider your goals, aspirations and what you want to achieve, help you identify your strengths as well as areas that you want to develop, and direct you straight to resources that can support you.
