With what feels like never-ending dark mornings and a long stretch ahead to Easter, we understand that bouncing back after the festive break is easier said than done. While we hope you found space to relax and recharge for all-important semester 2, we know for some of you the reality would have been more mark schemes and revision than mince pies for Rudolph.

But never fear!

To help switch that study-mode back on and get your critical-thinking cogs turning again, we’re running a January campaign in collaboration with Student Wellbeing jam-packed with informative and inspiring workshops.

Check out our motivational workshop menu below:

Learn to engage to start on the right page
Friday 25th January 2019
Willow 12pm-1pm
From notetaking and utilising your tutors’ office hours, to accessing your reading list, this workshop will show you how to make the most of your contact (and non-contact!) hours and find a study strategy that works for you.

These all look super, but where do we sign up?! We hear you cry…

The good news is all sessions are ready to book now, but don’t hold back as spaces are limited and sure to fill up fast. Will 2019 be your year?

You are also welcome to join us all week from 10am-4pm at the Catalyst ground floor event space, where you can:

  • Pick up a bookmark to gift to a friend
  • Contribute to an interactive study spaces map
  • Loan an inspirational DVD or book
  • Share suggestions for future workshops and toolkits

So dust off those planners and sharpen your pencils, it’s time to make some #UniResolutions!
