Find out what's happening this week in the Academic Skills Community and take the chance to give feedback.

Academic Skills Community

The Academic Skills Community has a range of varied events happening over the next few days to help you develop your academic skills.

We cover topics such as academic reading and writing, scientific writing, the dissertation journey, digital skills, data analysis, communication, and self development and reflection.

Which skills do you want to develop?

Can’t find what you’re looking for? Then we would love to hear from you! Helping students with their academic skills is why the Academic Skills Community exists - so it's super important to us that you have a say in what we do! You can let us know what kind of thing you’d want from us by completing our (totally anonymous) feedback form.
