The Centre for Academic Skills and English (CASE) aims to provide tailored support for all students during their time at University College Birmingham. Our mission is to enhance the student experience whilst helping students achieve their goals.
This may be in a variety of ways via:
- The Academic Skills Centre (ASC), which provides one-to-one and small group support in academic skills for all students, whatever their level.
Find out more about the ASC.
- CASE Toolkits - high quality online materials open to all students to develop academic skills. Find out more about CASE Toolkits below.
- CASE SENsitive – offering support and advice for any student with additional needs.
