Develop the key academic skills to achieve your best
The Academic Skills Centre is based on the first floor of the Library. We offer a wide range of workshops and one-to-one sessions.
Welcome back to 2018!
We are now taking bookings for all Academic Skills workshops. You can also come along to the session without booking if there is space.
As well as our bookable provision we are running 30 minute drop-in 1-1 Academic Skills tutorials each Tuesday afternoon (2pm-4pm) and Friiday morning (10am-12). Please come to the Library help desk (ground floor) where the tutorials will be held on the day to get a slot. Come up to 30 minutes early to avoid disappointment. Bring a piece of work to discuss and lots of questions.
