Academic Support

Want some general tips on how to study for different subjects? Check out the CUSU website.

If you want some more specific help from a professional author for your essay writing, why not get in touch with Christopher Moncrieff, Newnham’s Royal Literary Fund Fellows? The RLF Fellow will be happy to discuss all aspects of academic writing, from first-year essays to postgraduate theses. Find them here to book an appointment. Areas of assistance may include:

  • Generating ideas and themes
  • Planning
  • Improving structure
  • Developing argument

Subject reps are also on hand to answer any academic questions you may have! These are second and third years who have done the same course/modules as you- add them on facebook or send them an email to ask for essay plans, revision notes or any advice you may need. 

If you would like paper copies of Dr Sam Lucy’s Time management, essay writing sheets, email me at and I will pidge it to you.

Finally, make sure to keep an eye for weekly Academic Tea in the Buttery! Bring some work and have tea and cake with us
