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

Now you’ve handed in your assignments and had some feedback from your tutor, the next step is to make use of that feedback! Reviewing your feedback helps you to identify where you can make improvements in your assignment, it also clarifies where you are doing well (you put a lot of effort into your assignments so use the positive feedback as motivation, just as much as the constructive criticism)!

Once you have identified which areas you would like to work on, UniSkills workshops can help you to develop specific academic skills in order to address your feedback and improve your grades.

Most of our workshops take place during the lunchtime hours and are open to everyone no matter what your course, or year of study. Workshops are approximately 1 hour long, but if you’re pushed for time, take a look at our express workshops which offer you a short but detailed introduction to a topic, over just half an hour.

New for this semester we have Relaxation workshops running on 6th February and 5th March. This practical session aims to help you relax and unwind, reduce stress and anxiety in the build up to deadlines and teach you new techniques to concentrate, boost energy and improve sleep quality.

This semester we are also introducing a new series of workshops called “Shut Up & Work!”  These sessions provide you with a mixture of structured study time and (free) breakout refreshments with academic support on hand throughout. You will need to bring along your own work and we will bring the rest…!
