Learning Development at GCU London
GCU London supports learning development through the provision of an Academic Development Tutor, the Library and Target English.
We offer support to all our students, home and international, full-time and part-time, masters or PhD. We provide face-to-face and online academic support through a combination of workshops, small group sessions, one-to-one appointments, self-teach guides and tailored teaching within modules. The support available to students is provided in a professional and encouraging environment enabling them to develop the skills required to succeed at university and in their future employment.
Below is a guide to help you access the support you need:
