With all the upcoming exams and assessment deadlines, it’s likely you’ll have revision and preparation for assignment success towards the top of your priorities. As part of our Ready, Set, Revise campaign, we’ll be on hand to support and signpost you so you can make the most of your study time and achieve your academic goals.
Come and say hello
From the 18th-20th April, your Student Advisors will be ready to welcome you at their dedicated events space on the ground floor of Catalyst. Tuck into some healthy revision snacks, take a brain break with a spot of colouring, or simply find out more about how the UniSkills team can help you along your academic journey. To inspire your revision or share your own study tips, you’ll also find a feedback wall filled with motivational messages and helpful hints from your fellow revisers!
At our events space on the ground floor of Catalyst and on our Instagram, we’ll be collecting all your burning questions for the UniSkills team. Whether about referencing or revision worries, you can submit anonymously, and we’ll share the answers to as many as we can via videos on our social media channels.

Academic English language support
The Language Centre offers academic English language support sessions for international students and home students who do not have English as their first language. As these sessions are available throughout the semester, you can book anytime.
If you are a studying a language module with the Language Centre and have a query or feel that you need some support or guidance, you can also book an appointment with the Language Support Tutor. Appointments can be face-to-face in room LP0.07 (Law and Psychology building), or online via MS Teams.
Reading for pleasure
Although you’ll likely be doing lots of academic reading ahead of your assessments, reading for pleasure can be a great way to relax in between study sessions. As well as offering free access to a wide variety of eBooks and audio books via the Libby App, we also recommend paying a visit to our wonderful fiction section on the ground floor of Catalyst.
If you’re feeling particularly nervous about your upcoming assessments, you’re not alone. Alongside staying organised and planning ahead, it is important to remember there is always someone to talk to. This might be ourselves, your tutor, or the Wellbeing Team, who also have a wide selection of self-help resources. These include Togetherall, a 24/7 online community where you can get things off your chest, explore your feelings, get creative and learn how to self-manage your mental health and wellbeing with support from trained counsellors.
Follow our socials
Keep your eyes peeled on our Twitter and Instagram throughout the campaign, where we’ll be sharing lots of useful insights and blogs from your Student Advisors. From how they revise to what’s in their ideal study space, you’ll find plenty of wisdom to help you prepare for your own success. As always, we encourage you to follow along and even share a photo of your own study space using #EHUReadySetRevise.
Happy revising, and best of luck with your assessments!
