Centre for Learning and Study Support (CLaSS)

The CLaSS team work with undergraduate, postgraduate and research students, who are studying full-time, part-time and by distance learning. 

CLaSS knows that all students will need help and advice at some point in their studies. These are typical examples:

  • First year undergraduate - learn about simple strategies to help you to plan that first assignment.
  • Second year undergraduate - discover practical approaches to critical analysis in your academic writing.
  • Final year undergraduate - use guidance and support for your final dissertation.
  • Postgraduate and research students - make use of advice about studying at a higher level - maybe after having had some time out of education.‚Äč

Assignment drop-in runs every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 2pm until 3pm; and Tuesday and Thursday 5-6pm in the Learning Development Zone of the Kimberlin Library.

You can contact CLaSS via email at  class@dmu.ac.uk,by telephone on 0116 257 7042 or Or visit reception in the Kimberlin Library. You can also find more information on their library guide and book onto any of their workshops by clicking here.
