What your STEM SST can do for you

< Back to Event

We will be focusing on some common challenges that STEM students may encounter to illustrate how the Student Support Team can help.  Our 5 key themes are:

  1. STEM students studying for career progression/development – e.g. how to get practical experience needed and the importance of softer skills
  2. Importance of maths skills/confidence for most STEM students – what support/advice can we offer to help you succeed?
  3. Who to go to/sources of help – SST vs tutors and the importance of seeking support early
  4. Study planning/intensity/course choice – we always say our curriculum is more complicated than some so how can we help you plan your study?
  5. Studying online/using technology – can this be more challenging for STEM students especially those with disabilities? If so, we show you where help is available.
