Error:If you are in receipt of Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) and are entitled to receive non-medical help in the form of tuition from a specialist tutor, you will be informed who your provider is by DSA as this may not be the University. If you think that the University is your provider and you do not yet have an allocated tutor, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These sessions are only available to University of Suffolk students that are based at the Ipswich campus
Book an initial academic skills appointment using the blue button below.
You can book a one-hour initial appointment; initial appointments are available up to four weeks in advance for School-aligned advisors or two weeks for general advisors.
If you require a follow-up appointment, you can discuss this with your advisor in your initial appointment.
If for any reason you are unable to attend your appointment, you must cancel 24 hours prior to your appointment time. If you do not cancel 24 hours prior, this will be recorded as a 'used' slot.
If you have been unable to book an appointment at the time you would like, please complete the form here
Our Academic Skills Advisors are aligned to your subject and courses areas. We recommend seeing the ASA that is aligned with your course. However, if they are unavailable at the time you would like, you are able to select 'No Preference' on the booking system to see any ASA.
Please be aware that students and staff can book up to 1 hour with an Advisor. Our team may be required to cancel additional appointments that go beyond the one hour booking.
Once you have made your booking, you should receive an email confirmation. This email will confirm the time and place of your one-to-one appointment. If you have booked a Skype appointment, please ensure you have provided your Skype username. More information on Skype appointments can be found here: https://libguides.uos.ac.uk/Ipswich/Skype
Please arrive at the Library in good time, and either check-in at the Library helpdesk, or take a seat outside the Tutorial Space of the Library.

Please visit our team pages for information on the type of Advisor you may wish to meet.
You are the author of all of your assignments, it is therefore important that you understand the kinds of support we are able to provide, and the areas which remain your responsibility, as author.
We will not make comment on the content of your work or the accuracy of information presented and its relevance to the assignment task. While we will read short sections of your work, we will not proof read entire assignments, rewrite any part of your assignment for you or conduct literature searches for you.
When you receive your confirmation email you will see a link enabling you to cancel if you need to.
You will receive a reminder email 24 hours before your appointment. This email will also give you the option to cancel.
Simply click on this link and you will be asked if you are sure you want to cancel. If you click yes, the appointment will disappear from the Advisor’s calendar and they will receive a cancelation email.
