Need tips for managing your time? Struggling to read everything? Want to keep your notes in order? Then WolfWorks is for you!

WolfWorks Workshop

"It provided a good overview - in an easy-to-follow yet comprehensive manner, whilst providing enough detail and instruction that I could go away and trial the techniques to see which worked best for me. I only wish I had taken the course earlier!" 
Student feedback from a Wolfson Academic Skills workshop delivered in 2018-19

WolfWorks is a programme of skills development workshops run throughout the academic year. There are two strands: one for undergraduates and another for research skills. We cover topics relevant to everyone such as note making, critical thinking, speed reading and time management as well as researcher-specific skills of data management, metrics and getting published.

Distance Learning students are always welcome to contact the college to find how we can support your skills development. We offer bespoke 1-2-1 sessions with the Academic Skills Librarian when you are in Cambridge, can Zoom/Teams or respond by email and provide a range of online materials on the Wolfson College LibGuide

Get in touch if you have any questions as we're always happy to chat online 1-2-1. You may also want to take a look at the Wolfson College LibGuide for Academic Skills tips, tools and videos.
