Drop-ins

OUR DROP-IN SERVICE PROVIDES ON-THE-SPOT GUIDANCE AND TIPS

Please note: Our Drop-in service is closed during the vacation. The last Drop-in for the Autum term is on Tuesday 11th December. The first Drop-in in the new year will take place on Tuesday 8th January.

When?

Tuesday afternoons during term time, 14:00 - 17:00.

You do not need an appointment, just come along with a your questions.

Where?

Room 5, First Floor West, Mile End Library

How long do I have?

We aim to give you a minimum of 20 minutes at a drop-in.  To make the most of the time, you need to come to a drop-in with specific questions. If we are busy when you arrive, we can take your name and give you a time to come back.

How can I make the most of the session?

Come with a specific question about your work. At a drop-in, we cannot read your whole essay, but we can:

  • have a close look at a paragraph in your reading or writing that's bothering you
  • explain a knotty point of grammar or vocabulary use
  • unpack a piece of tutor feedback that you don't know how to apply
  • give you tips on how to answer exam questions and revise
  • make suggestions for your presentation
  • explain a specific point about referencing
  • let you know whether another service can help you further

We hope to see you soon!
