Study support is available to students in a number of different ways including:

1. Workshops

Workshops are offered in part during the induction period and the remainder during the semester. The workshops include:

  • Using the Library and Resource Centre
  • Accessing resources on-line
  • Using Adobe Connect
  • Academic writing of papers and dissertations
  • Correct referencing
  • Plagiarism and poor academic practice
  • Managing your workload

2. One-to-one help in writing in English

Students requiring one-to-one help with writing will be allocated a tutor. The purpose of these meetings is not to proof-read the paper in advance of submission but rather to go over sections of an essay with a view to showing the student how it can be improved. Students will email their paper to the tutor in advance of the meeting.

3. One-to-one feedback on assessments.

Students are free to meet with their tutors to go over the feedback they have received on their assignments.

4. Referencing Guides

There are various guides to the style and presentation of essays in the LBC Library. Students are encouraged to acquaint themselves with the style guides followed by LBC and adhere to them in all the written work they do. The Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) Style guide, available in the LBC Library, is recommended for Hebrew and Jewish Studies and the Harvard Style guide is recommended for social sciences and education.
