Student Support & Tutorials

With the continued success of the our English language school, we are pleased to introduce the Leicester Science Academy and New Walk Student Support Services. We have created these departments in response to demand for these very different services.

Over the past three years, we have responded to requests of all kinds from students from GCSE to degree level (and beyond), and now we now see the benefit of running these activities separately, with dedicated staff and specialists in the Sciences, ready to assist with a wide range of academic and pastoral situations. Some students just need help catching up with material missed through illness, while others find a particular module is causing problems, but we can help with almost anything that might be causing problems.

The Leicester Science Academy can offer rigourous, realistic training in the sciences from GCSE up to degree level, and proofreading up Master’s level.

The New Walk Student Support Centre is a drop-in centre that can help with everything else. We were students ourselves, once, and we haven’t forgotten what it’s like.
Come and talk to us if you think it might be useful. You never know – it might make all the difference.

For example, "We found out that the internal structure was stronger after this treatment" would be written not only in the passive voice but also the verb would be changed. It was found/ascertained/discovered that the internal structure was stronger after this treatment. Sometimes it does not matter if you use a phrasal verb or not. For example, the very commonly used phrasal verbs turn on and turn off can be replaced by activated and deactivated but it is not necessary. ... See MoreSee Less
