This may be by guiding you on studying more effectively, by making sure any disability does not impede your experience, or by supporting you with homesickness, as well as helping with any other difficulties you may have. The Student Support Service will be running a compulsory Study Skills session during the first few days of the International Summer School covering a range of topics to ensure you are able to get the most from your academic modules.
