Make an appointment
To make an appointment for a tutorial for support with Study Skills or EAP please call into Student Services on the top floor of Cavendish House.
English for Academic Purposes
Communication is the most basic principle to good medicine. If English is not your first language, we have an English for Academic Purposes (EAP) tutor to help you develop the language and study skills you will need to succeed in your academic coursework and clinical practice.
Studying at university level can be daunting – not only is it about studying at a higher level, the way in which you study is very different to school or college. Any AECC University College student can meet with our Study Skills Tutor for an individual tutorial to help you develop the academic skills for studying at university. The tutor can offer guidance on planning your written work, preparing for presentations, and organising your time.
Spiritual and Faith Support
AECC University College, Bournemouth University and Arts University Bournemouth share a multi-faith Chaplaincy, which is available to support staff and students of all faiths, or none.
A Chaplain is someone from a faith perspective who offers hospitality, care, guidance and a willingness to journey with you through your programme.
Whatever your ethnic background, and whatever faith you do or don’t follow, Chaplaincy allows you to:
- Talk to a Chaplain in confidence about personal matters
- Be put in touch with local faith communities and places of worship
- Explore the concept of religious faith and its implications for justice and peace
- Join a group for prayer, study or fellowship
- Ask questions about life issues
You can make an appointment to meet with a Chaplain by contacting Bill Merrington, Senior Chaplain, on 07894598915. Alternatively, you can meet David Ouwehand, AECC University College’s chaplaincy student, around the campus. The Chaplaincy is located in Talbot House, on the main Bournemouth University campus.
