Study Skills is part of KLaSS within Library Services. Our dedicated team of PhD Study Skills Leaders offer a range of support in mathematics, statistics, academic writing and study skills to all students.
Whether you are anxious about starting your first assignment or want to know how to produce a really good final year project, we hope that you will take advantage of the resources described here.
Developing skills is a gradual process and does not happen overnight. It is very much an individual process that you build on as you progress through your programme. Our emphasis is on assisting students ito fulfill their potential, to help improve their self-esteem and employability by becoming more independent and effective. Developing and reflecting on your study skills will help to boost your confidence and support you with the skills necessary to undertake a course in higher education and beyond. Please read our Charter to find out more about our Study Skills offering.
45 minute one-to-one appointments with our Study Skills Leaders are available during the times below. Slots and Study Skill Leader availability may vary - check upcoming appointments for details and to book. You can book 1 appointment a week, up to a maximum of 3 appointments in each booking period (Oct - Dec, Jan - April, May - Jun, Jul - Sept). This is to allow fair access to appointments and to help ensure the service is encouraging you to develop as an independent learner. We reserve the right to cancel bookings made by anyone abusing the service.
You can use the biographies to decide which Study Skills Leader you would like to see. Even if there is no Study Skills Leader from your discipline, you will be able to get advice from someone working in the same general area.
You can bring a sample of your work to the session to discuss with the Study Skills Leader. Please let us know if you have any accessibility issues by contacting us in advance on firstname.lastname@example.org
