Guides for Postgraduate Students

On this website we provide learning guides for postgraduate students at GSA.  The content of these pages is based on and informed by the issues, concerns and experiences that postgraduate and doctoral students have brought to us and we have successfully worked with in previous years.

Postgraduate study can present particular challenges for some students and the Learning Support and Development Service offers specific support for international students  who may be learning in a new country, educational context and additional language for the first time. The service also offers tailored support to students with disability related needs and can support eligible UK postgraduate students in applying to the Disabled Students Allowance scheme. We also offer support to students with specific learning differences such as dyslexia, including an assessment service for students with unidentified learning differences.

If you would like to make an individual appointment with a Learning Support tutor, please contact our administrator, Jemma, by telephone 0141 353 4787 or email
