Study Skills Support at Riseholme College

Study Support

Our Study Skills team will support you to develop learning strategies that suit your individual needs.

Whether you have a formally diagnosed disability or would simply benefit from additional guidance and mentoring to develop project planning and time management skills, you can access drop-in sessions or pre-book 1:1 tutorials.

University Centre Riseholme is committed to providing support to students to aid them in their studies. Our Study Skills team can assist with everything from understanding assignment briefs to working out percentages!

Distance learners can access the service through email, telephone or webinars and video calls.

Students who require more formal support may be eligible for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA).

Care Leavers' Package

We offer a comprehensive package of support for Care Leavers.

At the application stage, we offer you direct links to the Admissions department and the Student Services Manager, who can provide support and advice on every aspect of your application.

Your dedicated Programme Leader can advise and guide you on your chosen course. Once you have started your programme, they will be your first point of contact for support and regular progress meetings.

Alongside our normal day-to-day residential support provided by the Wardening team, you will be allocated a named member of staff who will guide you through every aspect of being a residential student; from how to apply for accommodation, funding and what to bring when you move in! This member of staff will meet with you regularly to ensure that you have the relevant support you require whilst living on campus.

Benefits to the Care Leaver's Package include:
  • A free laptop to assist you with completion of your course.
  • Residential fees paid (a £250 room deposit will still be required).
  • Free technology support for the duration of your course.
  • Regular meetings with our Careers Coordinator to help you identify your plans for the future and routes to success.
  • Support meetings with our Health and Welfare Officer, Student Services Manager and Student Support Manager which will ensure that you are being supported with all aspects of being a university student.
  • Access to our financial bursaries, including our employability bursary, Bishop Burton Bursary programme and Student Opportunity Fund. Find out more about the financial support we can offer.
  • Access to course fee scholarships. Two scholarships for care leavers, of £2,250 per annum for the duration of the programme, are available. (These are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.)
