Information for Staff

ASK has been developed through a collaboration between the academic and support services at Newcastle University. It is designed to support students' academic development.


The Where to Go section provides students with details of the central teams that can support them.

You may want direct your students and personal tutees to these pages to familiarise themselves with the support available.

Independent resources

The resources on the ASK website are designed for students to access independently, to support their studies. These are not subject-specific but focus on the core skills needed for academic study.

The resources are organised into a range of topics, and will in time be developed to include materials for all stages of academic study. You can direct students to these resources and information or build them into your personal tutee meetings and teaching.

The ASK project has been coordinated by the Writing Development Centre.
