Online guides

Our Skills Guides give you access to a range of resources to help you develop academic, digital and information skills - for example, planning your essay, creating forms and surveys, using Google Apps for collaborative work, academic writing, managing your references, and producing academic posters. There are videos, interactive tutorials, workbooks and links to other sources of help.


Digital skills training workshops are run by the Library and IT Services. The Writing and Language Skills Centre and Maths Skills Centre also run a series of workshops. The Writing and Language Skills Centre small group academic skills/language sessions are now open for booking.

One-to-one support

Based within the Library, the Writing and Language Skills Centre and Maths Skills Centre are free and available to all students. They offer drop-in sessions and appointments to give you the opportunity to focus on developing specific skills.
