The Library 

The Academic Liaison Team are holding one-to-one appointments with students working on their dissertations. They can help with searching for literature and using the Library's databases or give support with referencing software such as Endnote and Mendeley.  Please contact them by emailing @University Library with a brief outline of the help you are looking for and your availability.

English as an additional language

If you are a PGT student who uses english as an additional language, there is extra dissertation support available via iELS. The service is available throughout the summer to help you with the process of researching, planning and writing your Masters dissertation, delivered via a workshop programme and through one-to-one tutorials.

You can find more information and booking forms on the iELS Moodle page
