Centre for Academic Support and Enhancement (CASE)
The Centre for Academic Support and Enhancement (CASE) provides all of our students with free support, guidance and tuition in all areas of academic skills and English language. The service that we provide is aimed at improving your academic performance, regardless of your existing level: good students who want to be excellent ones are catered for equally with struggling students who want to achieve a pass level result.
You can see the current academic staff members of CASE here.
CASE Lecture Series
Key areas in which we feel you need support are covered by our series of lectures and seminars. These are delivered from Week 3 each semester.
There are 8 sessions in total so the series runs from Week 3 to Week 10. For students starting in September 2016, the lectures will be held at a time and date to be confirmed. The topics that will be covered are as follows:
Academic Skills Diagnostic Quiz
If you are not sure what your current knowledge and skill level is for the above topics then we recommend that you take our Academic Skills Diagnostic Quiz. HND students can access the quiz through their Moodle account; University of Northampton students through their NILE account. Some of the questions may seem quite tough at first, but there are answers and explanations provided. If you find you are really struggling, then this is a clear indication that you should come along to the CASE lectures and seminars.
Academic Skills Surgery
If you would like one-to-one feedback on your spoken or written academic English, you can book a 20 minute session with one of our academic English tutors. You will need to submit 250 to 500 words of writing (or bring a draft of a presentation you have been asked to deliver) before you come along to the surgery. The tutor will check your writing before your appointment and then give you feedback on your strengths and weaknesses, and direct you to resources which will help you in the areas in which you need to improve.
To book a surgery appointment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
There are many excellent web sites that contain a wide range of useful information and exercises on Academic and Study Skills.
