After a successful Semester 1, we’re delighted to announce the new Uni Skills workshop line-up for Semester 2!

Between September and December last year, we saw a whopping 229 students at our lunchtime workshop series!! We asked for your feedback and we had some fantastic responses:

We listened to your workshop suggestions and as a result we have introduced new workshops into the programme to support you on the topics where you feel you need it most (such as presentation skills for that all-important assessment or formatting long word documents to give them that professional-looking finish!)

If you haven’t attended one of our workshops before, there’s no better time to join! Workshops take place during lunchtime hours and are open to everyone no matter what your course, or year.

The full Semester 2 programme covers a range of key topics including:

  • Planning Your Assignment
  • Academic Writing
  • Harvard Referencing
  • Critical reading and critical analysis
  • Dissertations
  • Finding the right sources
  • Using eResources
  • Proof-reading strategies
  • How to stop putting things off and start getting things done
  • Mastering your exam revision

***New for 2016-17***

  • Powerful presentations
  • Working with long documents

If we don’t offer a workshop that you would like to attend, why not make a suggestion.
