From Monday 31st October to Friday 4th November Study Happy Week is back to help inspire you to find a happy and healthy study-life balance. From daily drop-ins with our Student Advisors and an exciting competition to our motivation-boosting Spotify playlist, there are plenty of ways you can get involved.

Here’s just a few of the activities the UniSkills team has in store…

Meet our new Student Advisors

Keep an eye out here on the blog, where we’ll be introducing you to our brilliant new team of Student Advisors. You will also be able to catch them in Catalyst for our Next Steps for Academic Success drop-ins (daily from 12-2pm) and online webinars (daily from 3-4pm), where they’ll be covering handy topics, such as finding academic information, locating your reading list, referencing tips, and more.

Study Happy Blogathon!

Our Student Advisors have also been busy writing blogs on a number of topics relating to studying happy. Whether you are interested in perfecting your assignments with proofreading tips, overcoming procrastination with time management advice, or just want to hear their experiences of settling into academic study, you’ll find lots of useful wisdom shared throughout the week.

Competition Time

As part of Study Happy Week, we’ll be running a competition to see which workshop topic you’d like to see included in our future UniSkills programme. As a thank you for taking part, you’ll be in with a chance of winning a £25 voucher of your choice.

Choose from:

  • Positive Study Habits
  • Academic Integrity
  • Note taking

Or, suggest your own! You can see our current workshop offering here. We look forward to hearing your suggestions, and encourage you to be as imaginative as you like!

To enter, follow this link (from Monday 31st October?), or visit the Study Happy stand on the Catalyst ground floor.

Tasty Free Fruit ?

Fuel your positive study habits or get a midday brain boost with a delicious banana or satsuma. You’ll find a ripe selection available in Catalyst, and while we can’t promise anything, it might just be the energy burst you need to get that reference list finished!

Study with Spotify ?

Our Student Advisors have put together a toe-tapping Study Happy Week Spotify playlist, filled with tracks to get you both motivated and stuck into study mode. From dance classics to indie favourites, it’s the perfect way to find your focus, or simply take a break between study sessions.

Tune in here

With the mornings getting darker and the winter chill starting to set in, we all can benefit from some extra motivation to keep the study momentum going.

We hope our jam-packed week of drop-ins, webinars, blogs and more will inspire you to ‘Study Happy’, but in the meantime we’d love to hear any tips you might already have for achieving that all-important study-life balance.
