The charity AchieveAbility, is pleased to be working in partnership with the University of Westminster Graduate School to provide this support.

The support will be delivered by the Chair and Founder of AchieveAbility who are themselves neurodivergent and who have Doctorates in the Humanities. Both support tutors are accredited by PATOSS and the Dyslexia Guild and are DBS checked. Both tutors have had substantial experience of supporting Post Graduate students.

Your Support Tutors will:

• Provide signposting and information to students rather than advice  about academic and personal matters

• Maintain professional boundaries at all times

The support will help with:

• Research methods
