Struggling with a subject? Need extra tuition?

If you find you're struggling with a particular subject and need some extra tuition from a peer, we might be able to help!

Your Students' Union has a grinds system to ensure you get the best tuition and assistance to aid your progression through your course of study. Our quality assurance procedure ensures any student giving grinds will have to provide proof of their grades.

Grinds are normally in the region of 15 - 25 per hour for one to one session. If we don't have the grinds you're looking for then let us know and we will advertise this for you on our website, Facebook, Twitter and college magazine!

Top of the class? Fancy making some extra money?

If you are in 2nd year or above, and have a grade of 70% (equivalent or higher) you could earn extra cash by giving grinds to students who might find a particular subject difficult. Students often look for help coming up to exams and this is the ideal way to make use of your knowledge and earn some extra money! To ensure our students get the best tuition, you will have to provide proof of your grades. You must attach the grades to your application form and return it to the Students' Union for validation.
