Study support

At Weston College we believe that the student comes first, so we are proud to provide a number of ways in which learners can receive support for their studies.

As part of LibraryPlus, our friendly and helpful learning mentors are here to help you maximise your potential. They will work with you on a one-to–one basis, in small groups, or with your whole class on live projects and assignments.

These study skills sessions will support you at whatever level you need, whether it’s getting back into learning after a break, or stretching into the next level. Our students have commented that their study support can often make the difference in achieving a higher grade.

Our first year Higher Education (HE) students also benefit from our HELP (Higher Education LibraryPlus) programme. This is a structured, five-week programme which includes hour-long sessions on literature searching techniques and evaluating resources, using eJournals and online databases, exploring eBooks and reading list materials and writing references and bibliographies.

All students have access to state-of-the-art PCs, AppleMacs, laptops and iPads on all campuses within LibraryPlus, which enable you to carry out independent research. LibraryPlus provides wireless Internet access for learners wishing to use mobile devices. A wide variety of learning technology is available for loan, including HD video cameras, Flip cameras, and Kindles.
