It was great to see you all in semester one and we particularly enjoyed getting to meet you face to face again. But the fun (and learning!) doesn’t stop there! As we are here to support you throughout your entire course at Edge Hill University we would love for you to join us again this semester as we launch our UniSkills Spring Workshop programme!

Book Your Workshop

Our UniSkills Spring 2022 Workshop programme covers a wide range of topics including academic reading, writing and referencing, effective exam preparation, finding academic resources, conducting a literature review, presentation skills and much more!

New for 2022!

We have two brand **NEW** workshops for 2022:

How to be a Successful Student

This workshop will provide you with the space and time to think about your study experiences as a student so far, what’s working well and what you might need to improve upon. We will also share plenty of study tips and advice along the way too.

Summarising Strategies

This workshop is all about summarising information, a key academic skill that is often overlooked. We’ll explore summaries in our everyday lives; explore how, when and why we use summarising skills in our academic lives and finally, we’ll put several summary strategies into practice! 

Check out the full line-up and book your place through the student portal. There are various dates and times to choose from and there is no limit on the number of workshops you can attend. UniSkills offer a mixture of on campus workshops and online webinars, which can be accessed both on or off campus as you can attend in person or virtually through Blackboard Collaborate. Watch our video guide for more details on how to really get the most out of attending a UniSkills workshop.

Book a 1-2-1 Appointment

Many of you will now have handed in your first assignments and will be eagerly awaiting your marks, but don’t forget that your feedback is also really important. Reviewing your tutors feedback will help you to understand any areas for development that you can focus on to help improve your writing and aim for those higher marks.

If you would like any help putting an action plan together from your feedback then the Student Engagement (UniSkills) team are here to help! Book a 1-2-1 appointment with one of our knowledgeable Academic Skills Advisors for more tailored support with your own academic writing, referencing or finding high quality online resources for your research!

Further Help and Support

If you have any general enquiries about resources for your studies or academic skills support you can contact the Catalyst Helpdesk Monday to Friday between 8am and 11pm and Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 6pm.

We wish you all the best for semester two and look forward to supporting you soon!
