All Nations has a dedicated Information and Learning Services Team to support students with their studies.

The following applies to all students, regardless of whether they are taking the OU-validated programmes or the ANCC non-validated programmes.

The Information and Learning Services team offers guidance and support in the following areas:

Information Skills   

Support and guidance is available on how to use the library and find the best resources for personal study.

Study and research  skills

Study Skills sessions are run throughout the year,  covering topics such as reading effectively, use and management of sources, citation and how to avoid plagiarism, and developing critical thinking. These sessions  are particularly valuable for international students and those entering or returning to higher education. Additional study skills sessions to help develop the analytical, critical and evaluative skills needed to write assignments are also provided for students at all levels.  

Postgraduate students are required to complete a Study Skills module prior to submitting their first assignments.  

Sessions on developing research skills are conducted for students of all levels to support them with writing research proposals and papers and are a core part of the curriculum.

Information and Communications Technology

Information and Communications Technology is an essential part of student life and work.  The Information and Learning Services Team supports students with their use of ICT, including those who are learning at a distance, by providing secure ICT facilities and services and giving advice on using them effectively and safely. 

Individual Support

The College recognises that each student has unique needs and that in the case of those with a specific disability, health condition or learning difficulty, this will manifest itself differently in each case. In order to support all students pastorally and academically throughout their studies, it therefore aims to provide personal support to each individual as required.  All Nations wants to support students from the very start of their journey with us, so asks applicants to inform the College of any specific needs as part of the application process. This enables us to work out an appropriate learning support plan together.
