Study Support Tutor

Dr Lisa Rüll 

As the Study Support Tutor for Disability Support, I have a particular role in providing study strategies advice for disabled postgraduate students.

If you are a disabled student in contact with Disability Support, then your Disability Support Adviser will be able to arrange a referral to me.

Appointments are available with me on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays in Cherry Tree Lodge, University Park. On Thursdays I am available at Jubilee in Xu Yafen Building. I am also scheduling visits to the Graduate Centres, and if needed I can offer appointments via Skype (phone or video).

Please note that my Disability Support Adviser colleagues will continue to organise specialist practical support and recommendations for reasonable adjustments for disabled postgraduate students. Similarly, my Academic Support Tutor colleagues will continue to provide the specialist support for students with Specific Learning Differences (SpLDs e.g. dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD).


Dr Lisa Rüll

A PhD alumni of UoN (AHRB funded, graduated 2004 American and Canadian Studies), I started working in Academic Support in 2003. I have University and college academic subject teaching experience across the humanities, and over 25 years practice in supporting student learning, increasingly with disabled students.

I won a UoN Lord Dearing award in 2013. This particularly reflected my work with students with mental health issues and issues around perfectionism/procrastination, as well as my role in developing the  Academic Support Study Resources and on the  Studying Effectively website.
