301 Study Skills workshops are open to all students at all levels of study. You can attend as many or as few workshops as you like to create your own personal skills programme. Unless otherwise indicated, sessions take place at 301 Glossop Road in the Flexible Workshop space, are free of charge and are offered on a first-come-first-served basis, so sign up now to avoid disappointment. Dates and times of sessions are available via the calendar below, or by topic here. A flyer of the full programme can be downloaded here.

Why should I attend?

The academic skills workshops are open to all students regardless of your year of study. Attending the workshops can help you improve your study skills and develop your academic technique. Most workshops contain a mixture of tutor presentation and small group activities where you'll have a chance to chat to other students from different disciplines and year groups.

Do I need to book?

Booking is strongly recommended to guarantee a place although it is also possible to just turn up on the day. If there's space, we will accommodate you where possible. Please remember to cancel your booking if you can no longer attend so that we can offer your place to students on the waiting list. You can see what's coming up this week by scrolling through the calendar below. Or, to view dates by topic, follow the links below.
