UniSkills would not only like to congratulate you on securing your place at Edge Hill University, but also invite you to join our exciting line up of Getting Started With UniSkills Webinars!
From preparing your academic resilience and discovering research skills at university, to academic writing and transitioning to postgraduate study, these sessions are designed to help boost your confidence ahead of the academic year.
Whether writing, referencing, or finding academic information, all of the webinars are held online and offer a taste of the types of academic skills you will develop here with us at Edge Hill. They are also a fantastic opportunity to meet your Academic Skills Advisors and ask any questions about what it’s like to study at university level.
Getting Started with UniSkills Webinars
Bookings are open and will close at 11pm the day before each event:
Prepare Your Academic Resilience for University
This webinar will equip you with practical tools to nurture your academic resilience. Help you recognise the qualities of a ‘growth’ as opposed to ‘fixed’ mindset. And help prepare you to feel confident in dealing constructively with feedback.
Research Skills at University
Discover more about developing your research skills in preparation for studying at Edge Hill University. We will introduce you to the concept of academic information, the importance of using dedicated search tools to find information and discuss good note-taking techniques for carrying out your research.
Introduction to Academic Writing at University
Join us as we introduce what academic writing is, and what it involves at university level. We will look at what to expect as a student at Edge Hill University, how to get the most out of your learning and how to maintain your study motivation.
Transitioning to Postgraduate Taught (PGT) Study
In this new webinar you be introduced to key skills you will need to develop to support study at PGT level. You will meet members of our friendly team and there will be opportunities to interact with peers from other postgraduate taught (PGT) programmes in a supportive online learning environment. We will discuss finding academic information, academic reading, academic writing, and academic communities.
