Pioneer of Bradford Faculty of Management and Law student learning support service attends graduation at Middle East partner college

A stalwart of the University of Bradford Faculty of Management and Law has returned from a trip to a partner college in the Middle East where he was invited to advise them on setting up an academic learning service.

Dr Martin Sedgley was asked by the College of Banking and Financial Studies (CBFS) in Oman to offer his expertise in student support.

Dr Sedgley pioneered the Effective Learning Service at the Faculty of Management and Law.

The service helps students maximise their academic potential, as well as help overseas students adapt quickly to UK academic requirements.

It provides a huge range of services, including various workshops run during term time, one-to-one consultations, as well as printed and online resources to cater for every possible development area.

After discussing the requirements of CBFS, Dr Sedgley provided a report to help implement a successful learning support service.

Dr Sedgley, who is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, said: “I enjoyed my trip to CBFS tremendously – there were several memorable highlights.

“I had a number of very constructive discussions with a wide range of colleagues at CBFS, and I am returning with many ideas to share with faculty colleagues in Bradford.”

While at the CBFS in Oman, Dr Sedgley also represented the University of Bradford at the School’s graduation ceremony and the celebration of its 10 year anniversary of its partnership with Bradford.

CBFS Assistant Dean of Academic Support and Student Affairs, Dr. Yasmeen Shanan Al Balushi thanked Dr Sedgley and Bradford School of Management for its support. She said: “It was our pleasure to have Dr Sedgey with us during CBFS graduation and the celebration of 10 years of the Bradford foundation program at CBFS. It was indeed a proud occasion.”

Guest of honour was Dr Abdullah bin Mohammed Al Sarmi, undersecretary for the Ministry of Higher Education.
