What our students say about us
“Since getting my diagnoses, I have been able to get some invaluable support towards my PhD from The Learning Support Centre.
The support has been in the following ways:
1) Once a week a personal tutor and I meet, she helped me to recognise what I could do as self-help strategies when reading and writing.
Self-help strategies went a long way with the 20,000 words literature review I conducted and when I was writing my research proposal of 17,000 words.
2) I also had some very prompt and high quality support to help transcribe all of my interviews for the PhD.Once again, due to my learning style, typing
a word for word interview, would have taken me a lot longer than someone who did not have learning problems.
Jotters were able to help get the transcription ready, quickly, so that I could start to analyse the data.
I am grateful for the professional, friendly and helpful support Jotters and The Learning Support Centre has provided me with.
I am now in my 4th year, and I am confident that I will complete this doctorate within the next 2 years.”
