Study resources and academic support

Academic Skills run free workshops all year round to help you reach your full potential (online sessions are also available). Their Quick Guides are an easy-to-use resource that are designed to be downloaded so that you can refer to them quickly and easily while you are either working on an assignment.

The Library website and Library toolbox provides links to myReadings, research databases and online tutorials that help you to use these effectively. Online Learning Tools and Build Your Skills have some great resources for all students including the Academic Language Self-Assessment tool.
