What do I need to do?
To qualify for the Academic Skills Certificate, you need to:
- Complete the skills audit
- Participate in a minimum of 4 workshops in the 2017/18 academic year
- Complete a 2,500 word piece of reflective writing (500 words on each workshop you attended and a 500 word overall summary) and submit online
Our Academic Skills Certificate Pathways enable you to develop and reflect upon your skills in a specific study skills area.
Our pathways provide a thorough exploration of a particular study skills theme (such as Communication Skills), and highlight the different skills and knowledge required for academic development and success. Choosing a specific pathway demonstrates your commitment to developing and reflecting on your skills in a structured and considered way.
Both your certificate and your HEAR recognition will state which pathway you have chosen to take when completing the Academic Skills Certificate.
Choose ANY 4 workshops from the 301 Academic Skills Workshops, MASH Workshops or Library Information Skills workshops.

You are welcome to complete the certificate multiple times, choosing a different pathway each time you do so (however, you may not write about the same workshop more than once in your submissions).
