Workshops and Courses

Self managed online workshops

Many students like to plan and manage their own learning. Term and trimester breaks offer some time out to pick up on your skills, particularly those skills that you know need a tune up!

Find out about tUNEup from home, an optional on-line learning support program for students who may not be confident about studying or writing at university and who would like to do some preparation at home before embarking on their studies.

Listed below are workshops providing information and/or interactive exercises for learning strategies, academic reading and writing, maths and stats, referencing, oral presentation strategies, research and computer skills, and rules for writing. You may elect to train yourself or use the site to help you with specific problems as they arise in your academic work. Spend some time browsing and get to know what the site offers for you!


Academic writing and study skills sessions

The content from previously offered workshops on research and referencing, academic writing and perfecting your writing has been compiled into a series of video based lessons in the Academic Skills Office Resources Moodle site.
