What is Budi
Budi is a 'safe space' where students and staff work together to provide some extra help with researching, writing or referencing for assignments. At BUdi, student support is offered by an academic skills adviser, a librarian and staff from a variety of courses (your course coordinator will advertise which weeks a course tutor will be available at BUdi for consultation), as well as student mentors.
If you have a question about researching for your assignment, or a short query about assignment structure or referencing, do come along and drop in.
- Bring your task, marking criteria and your own questions.
Just remember, we can't proofread at Budi but we will do our best to answer your questions.
