About the Programme

It is a diverse and engaging set of workshops led by Fellows, College Research Associates and University staff and is open to all students regardless of discipline. Naturally, some are tailored to those embarking on their studies such as literature searching and reference management software, whilst others will appeal to researchers nearing completion who may want to think about measuring the impact of their research or modes of publication. However, generic sessions on time management, speed reading and memory skills will appeal to students at all stages of their academic journey.

This term we are offering the following classes. If you have any ideas for other sessions that you would like to attend, please contact the Academic Skills Librarian.
