A warm welcome back to all our returning students!
Getting back into the flow of studying again after a break can feel exciting, but also challenging. This year, our whole University community will be getting to grips with living our lives in new ways, whilst re-engaging in and enjoying our studies, both on and offline. You may feel like you are starting all over again, but whether you are anxious about returning to learning after a break, or are ready to dive in and take the opportunity to gain some new skills, UniSkills is here with lots of resources and support to help you stay on track and do the best you can.
All Edge Hill University students can join our interactive UniSkills webinars for a chance to learn, discuss, and improve their academic skills. From the 5th October, you can choose from a wide range of online workshops to refresh and grow your skills. Take your pick from brand new and returning favourite sessions, and book yourself a place at ehu.ac.uk/workshops.
1-2-1 Academic Skills Support
Whether you have a draft up and running, want to nail your search strategies, or would like to focus on using feedback to develop, you can book a UniSkills 1-2-1 appointment with an Academic Skills Advisor here.
Being part of a learning community and engaging in discussion and peer support with fellow students is one of the best things about studying at university, and is important to flourishing as a learner. One place to forge these links, in an informal and friendly setting, is the UniSkills Returning to Learning (R2L) community. Sessions are running virtually this semester and take place fortnightly on a Wednesday afternoon (2-4pm), with the first one starting on October 21st. Make yourself a cup of something warm, and follow the booking link to join our friendly academic skills advisors Kat and Helen for a chance to meet other students, chat about your learning experiences, and discover study tips and strategies, as we settle back into University life together.
Keep in touch and we look forward to meeting you soon! You can also get news about our latest events and activities by following us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and find more news and tips at the UniSkills Blog.
