Study Skills Workshops 2017-2018

The workshops cover the key academic practices required to become a reflective, self-directing learner. The undergraduate sessions are designed for first year students but may be of interest to all undergraduates wishing to review their current study practices. Similarly, the postgraduate workshops will be of particular use to those on taught programmes of study but may also be of interest to all postgraduates wishing to develop their research and writing skills.
