The Academic Skills Community is for you!

Academic Skills Community

Happy Week 4, everyone! The Academic Skills Community is now in full swing, with our online skills workshops and community groups taking place every single day.

Plus, don’t forget that we’re adding new stuff to our resources page all the time - keep your eyes on that too!

What 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.
