Assignment Surgeries

Maximise your chances of success on your upcoming assignment by attending our assignment surgery. This is your opportunity to see a study coach on a one to one basis to discuss your assignment, get some quick tips on how to make improvements or advice on first steps if you are struggling to get started.

The assignment surgery is not bookable in advance but appointments can be booked on the day. A sign-up sheet will be available each day at 9.30am on the door of the room (HEL 341 in Cambridge, Study Skills Plus Centre in the library in Chelmsford).
