Autumn UniSkills Timetable

*Drumroll please*

After the success of our first EVER summer UniSkills offer, we know that you’ve all been eagerly awaiting our Autumn timetable!

As always, you can expect to find a programme full to the brim with the very best academic advice delivered by our knowledgeable team here at Learning Services.

Our team know everything there is to know about Harvard Referencing, Academic Writing and Powerful Presentations so be sure to book yourself in to prepare for upcoming assignments.

We really do have something for everyone, no matter of your discipline or year of study! If you’re new to University level learning, or need a refresher after the summer holidays, why not try Introduction to Academic Writing. Perhaps you need help with Conducting a Literature Review, especially if it’s the first one you’ve written. If you’d like a space to practice presentations (whether it’s academic, for an interview or for a personal venture) then head along to UniSpeaks where you can try out public speaking and receive feedback from a friendly group of peers.

You may be interested in trying a brand-new workshop which focuses on Growing Your Academic Resilience, something that will be beneficial for anyone who struggles with receiving feedback on their assignments. We have Developing Academic Writing for our students who are advancing to the next level this academic year, as well as Harvard Referencing for anyone and everyone who has questions about how to reference correctly!

Whether you are writing your first essay or your fiftieth our Finding Academic Information and Reading Academic Texts workshops will help you to develop strategies to find the best resources and ensure you are an active reader. Once you have all of the information you need to write your essay, you might like to book onto our Become a Paraphrasing Pro session to help you to put everything that you have read into your own words in a concise way.

If that wasn’t enough we also have some sessions which are for students who have specific types of assignments looming this year! Firstly, we are offering Powerful Presentations to help you to get top marks and become a confident speaker. We also have Effective Exam Preparation workshops for anyone who is lucky enough(!) to have an exam whilst they are at university. If you are writing your dissertation this year we have two sessions which aim to keep you on track! Firstly we have Writing your Undergraduate Dissertation for our final year students who would like to find out more about finalising a research question and what to include in each section. Finally, we also have a Writing Your Postgraduate Dissertation for any of our Masters students who require some additional guidance.

You can check out the full line-up and book yourself on here. If you are unable to attend a session but would like some additional guidance on any of these topics then please get in touch with us or book a 1-2-1 appointment here.

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!
