Drop-in service

If you’d like to see someone in person about your academic skills, the first place to go is our drop-in service. This is held at Harrison, Walsall and Telford libraries. There’s no need to book – just come along at the following times:

City (Harrison Library) 

Monday - Friday, 11am – 2pm

Walsall Library

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 11am – 2pm

Telford (Hutchison Library)

Wednesday, 11am – 2pm


There will be no drop-in at Telford on 19th June 2024.


Please note that the drop-in service can be very popular at peak periods (such as assignment deadlines). If you can't be seen between 11am-2pm, contact us to request an appointment. To access our other support, including online workshops, head to www.wlv.ac.uk/skills

Have some feedback on our service? You can let us know your thoughts here: https://uow-survey.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/skills-for-learning-support-feedback

Useful info:

Do you have a particular learning need? Before booking an appointment with us, we’d recommend you look over the Communication Services page. If you require a BSL interpreter, manual note-taker or other communication support service, please organise this prior to confirming an appointment time.

Is English not your first language? You can also book appointments with an Academic English tutor. Enrol in Academic English Language Skills canvas course https://canvas.wlv.ac.uk/enroll/6AHT8E (it’s free!) to access a variety of online resources and sign up for an online 1to1English tutorial.

Please note that the Skills for Learning team cannot proofread work and cannot offer subject-specific advice. For further information about our support, please download our Skills for Learning Appointment Guidance

Finally, if you and other students are looking for an appointment together we can arrange this. Just contact us with a list of the student names and numbers, and we’ll arrange for a group session.
