Let’s hear it for UniSkills…

Recently, we’ve been asking you – our students – what you think about UniSkills and the academic support we provide.

Happily, lots of you provided some great feedback and we thought it would be useful to share it with those of you who may need some extra support but haven’t yet booked to attend a workshop or 1-2-1 appointment.

So, read on to find out what you may have been missing out on and how to get involved…

UniSkills 1-2-1 Appointments

Are you looking for some one on one support? Then book a 1-2-1 appointment with our friendly team of Academic Skills Advisors. We offer both academic writing and information skills appointments. These sessions are great if you are perhaps struggling with something specific or just need a bit of advice.

Academic writing appointments allow you to informally discuss all things essay writing, referencing, presentations etc. Whilst information skills appointments give you some time to practice your literature searching; using Discover More or subject specific databases. But don’t take our word for it, here’s what some of our students think about UniSkills 1-2-1 appointments

“The advisor was extremely helpful and listened to my concerns, offering lots of helpful advice and answering any questions I had regarding the work.”

“I was really pleased with my appointment! I was able to ask all my questions and get the answers needed to help me.”

“I’ve learned how to develop my skills and how to find reliable sources using Discover More.”

“My experience with 1-1 support has been excellent. I have liaised with multiple support staff, and my experiences have been very positive.”

So, perhaps you’ve received some assignment feedback which you need to look at and work on, or maybe you just need a bit of support with your writing – have a look at the support on offer and book to see the UniSkills team.
