The School of Architecture, Art and Design (AAD) has a dedicated team of Academic Mentors to support students with their studies and help them to achieve academic success. Our aim is to build your academic confidence by enhancing your critical and contextual skills across all the creative disciplines. We do this by making sure you have an Academic Mentor for every year of your undergraduate degree.
As a student in AAD, you have access to an organisation on Weblearn called AAD Academic Support. Here you will find helpful resources and information on what our Academic Mentors offer throughout the academic year.  If you would like to meet with an Academic Mentor, please email the team:
