During this period of uncertainty let us reassure you that you can still access lots of help, support and guidance with your academic skills via our UniSkills service.
UniSkills provides a wide range of support designed to help you develop your academic skills and confidence at University and beyond. Our team are ready and waiting (virtually!) to provide advice and support around assignment planning, academic writing and referencing, finding academic information and more.
We are no strangers to providing information virtually and many of you will be familiar with accessing UniSkills information via the UniSkills webpages and your My Library Tab in Blackboard. Here you will find a wide range of support materials including online guides, videos and toolkits on topics from time management to presentation tips.
The Finding Academic Information pages are a great place to start if you are looking for tips on how to access high-quality information for your assignment. Here you will find a package of online video tutorials to guide you through how to make the most of your key learning resources.
The Academic Reading and Writing pages provide information about academic writing including being critical, paraphrasing and proofreading.
Individualised 1-2-1 UniSkills support continues to be available but we have relocated our face to face appointments online and will be offering virtual appointments for the foreseeable future. If you would like an appointment with one of our Academic Skills Advisors just book online and we will send you all the details you need to join the session:
- Book a virtual appointment for support with Academic Writing / Referencing
- Book a virtual appointment for support with Information Skills (Search Skills and Finding Resources)
If you cannot find a suitable date or time then just get in touch.
Our popular UniSkills workshops will be returning w/c 20th April with a fully online programme of webinars – lookout for the new virtual timetable coming soon!
If you have a question or query about how we can support you with your academic skills during this period contact us via email at [email protected] or use our Ask Us service. Don’t forget – we are here to support you – just in a slightly different way.
