Workshops and help for students

The Skills for Learning open workshop programme covers:

  • Academic Skills, including essay writing, plagiarism and critical thinking
  • Maths and statistics, including SPSS
  • IT: Microsoft Office software

The sessions are taught by our Academic Skills Tutors and Academic Librarians.

The workshops last for between 30 and 90 minutes and students need to book in advance (drop-in sessions are exempt from this). Some of the sessions are run as webinars where students participate online.

The timetable runs during term-time at both campuses.

Students who need individual help, or who are unable to attend any of our timetabled sessions can be directed to our 'Get Help' page.
