What is UniSkills?

UniSkills Workshops offer you a unique opportunity to sharpen a variety of academic skills. Led by our friendly and knowledgeable Academic Skills Advisors, these sessions provide a supportive and interactive online environment where you can learn alongside fellow students in an informal, small group setting.

Starting from 5 October, our autumn/winter 2023 workshop programme promises a diverse array of topics to help you excel in your academic studies. From honing your academic reading, writing and referencing skills to mastering the art of effective exam preparation, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a glimpse of what’s in store:

  • How to be a Successful Student: Reflect on your study habits to maximise your potential.
