Study Skills Support

At Stansfield, students enrolled for the University of London programmes benefit from academic support outside of the lectures such as personalised assisted learning where students are required to design their own study plan for the academic year. During these sessions students may also arrange for personal consultations with our full-time lecturers for academic guidance. The discussion and study groups also form a useful avenue for students to experience peer to peer teaching and learning. Additionally, students also have access to the following resources and support relevant to their programme.

Personalised Assisted Learning

The PAL Learning System allows all students to have a one-to-one consultation with the lecturers to ensure they fully understood the learning outcomes. The one-to-one coaching encourages students who are not vocal during their time in the classroom to be able to voice out their views and ask questions. We find the system absolutely useful to anyone who wants to reinforce their views on what they have learned or failed to learn in the actual lectures.


Unique to Stansfield College, StudyWiz is the College’s on-line learning web portal where course materials and all other relevant information and circulars are posted. Students may access the following on the web portal.

  • Course Information sheets
  • Lesson plans and course notes
  • Lecture slides
  • Reading materials
  • Assignments
  • Quizzes & short tests
  • Videos of lectures
  • Students e-profile
