    How to excel in your studies

    Students studying at a tableTake advantage of the free e-textbook

    Free personal eTextbooks are provided to all students enrolled on undergraduate and postgraduates modules based at the UK Hendon campus. The eTextbook is yours to keep throughout your degree. You can access your personal eTextbooks, through myLearning, after logging into myUniHub.

    Student Learning Assistants (SLAs) and Graduate Academic Assistants are always there to help you.

    SLAs do not teach students but are fully trained to work with students using effective questioning and active listening methods. They work collaboratively with academic staff, supporting students in small groups and one-to-one, in the classroom and in pre-arranged locations across the University.

    Graduate Academic Assistants provide additional support that may include face to face drop-in sessions, on-line support, assisting academic staff in the development, production and delivery of programme materials and the collation of programme and module data and information. Visit the MDX support services page for more information.
